asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will list all training opportunities programme scheme courses with age limits indicating (a) current limits and (b) any previous limits.

An applicant for a training opportunities scheme course must be 19 or over at the start of the course or, for post-graduate courses, 27. For entry to certain courses higher minimum ages are specified, either nationally or as being appropriate to local needs. For a limited number of courses, applicants over a certain age may not be considered, for example for safety reasons. To gather comprehensive information on current and previous age limits would entail a disproportionate cost.
