10 Whilst project managers identified the number of employers involved in the project questionnaire. in a number of cases the project managers did not detail the nature of the employers' involvement. Hence the number of employers actively involved and the number of employers partially involved do not sum to the total number of employers involved.

11 Employers who have participated in the project for example through release for learners, promotion of the project, or by participating in the steering group are defined as actively involved.

12 Employers who have signed up to the projects and have had limited involvement, perhaps providing some funding, but not actively involved in promoting the project are defined as partially involved.

13 Statistics were recorded against the age bands presented only.

14 Funding only limited in the first year. From 2001-2002, two years funding available.
