1 Figures not available because responses to the follow-up survey in Powys were insufficient to be statistically reliable.

The percentage completion rates relate to the overall starts figures provided and are not adjusted for circumstances in which some trainees (i) switch from one training course to another during the course of their training without having completed the original course or (iii) leave training having achieved a full or part qualification but without fully completing their training plans.

The data needed to provide such an adjustment is not available centrally.
