star this property answer text <p>The government recognises that learning English is essential to enabling refugees to rebuild their lives. The department supports adults in England through the Adult Education Budget (AEB) to secure the English language skills that they need. The Home Office and the Department for Education have also provided £10 million to enable refugees resettled through the Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme to access additional classes. The government has committed to developing a new strategy for English for speakers of other languages in 2019. Funding for all programmes beyond 2019/20, including any potential funding for this strategy, will be set during the upcoming Spending Review.</p><p> </p> more like this

For example, information on the number of learners starting apprenticeships by geographical area, including by parliamentary constituency is published on GOV.UK. The table below provides apprenticeship starts for the Leeds North West Constituency in the 2016/17 academic year and in the first quarter of the 2017/18 academic year:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong>2016/17</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2017/18 Quarter 1</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apprenticeship Starts</p></td><td><p>530</p></td><td><p>130</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p><strong>Notes: </strong></p><p>1) Volumes are rounded to the nearest 10.</p><p>2) 2016/17 covers August 2016 to July 2017, and 2017/18 Quarter 1 covers August to October 2017.</p><p>3) 2017/18 Quarter 1 is reported to date and will be subject to revision.</p><p> </p><p>These data are published in the ‘FE data library’ on GOV.UK:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/fe-data-library-apprenticeships" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/fe-data-library-apprenticeships</a>.</p><p> </p><p>Additionally, statistics showing the destinations outcomes of learners completing apprenticeships between 2014 and 2015 are available in the ‘Further education outcome-based success measures’ publication:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/further-education-outcome-based-success-measures-2014-to-2015" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/further-education-outcome-based-success-measures-2014-to-2015</a>. For example, in the Leeds Local Authority District, 4,130 apprentices in 2014/15 completed apprenticeships with 87% going a sustained positive destination, 83% were in sustained employment, and 19% were in sustained learning.</p><p> </p><p>It should also be noted, that all learners starting apprenticeships are paid at least the minimum wage (<a href="https://www.gov.uk/apprenticeships-guide/pay-and-conditions" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/apprenticeships-guide/pay-and-conditions</a>).
