To ask the Secretary of State for Employment (1) if he will now publish the full results of the 100 per cent. follow-up survey of employment training leavers; and if he will make a statement;(2) how frequently updated information from the 100 per cent. follow-up survey of employment training leavers is supplied to operational technical education colleges and Training Agency regional offices; and if he intends to make information available on a similar basis to hon. Members.
The full results of the 100 per cent. follow-up survey of employment training leavers contains records for individual trainees. This information is confidential and it would therefore be inappropriate to publish it. Summary results from the survey are sent monthly to regional offices and TECs. Information is available for hon. Members on a similar basis and is placed in the Library.
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what proportion of those who have completed courses under the employment training scheme have entered full-time employment; and what average cost of training this represents as a per capita share of the total costs of the scheme.
[holding answer 26 November 1990]: Of those trainees who left employment training between July 1989 and June 1990 after completing their agreed training, 26 per cent. went into full-time employment. Of all trainees who left employment training, 40 per cent. achieved a positive outcome, which includes full and part-time employment, self-employment and further training or education. The training cost per ET trainee leaving for a positive outcome is estimated to be £3,500.
