To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what percentage of (a) vocational and (b) academic Level 3 qualifications were awarded in (i) colleges and (ii) schools in the last year for which figures are available. [122285]

The table shows the numbers and proportions of vocational and academic awards at Level 3, by centre type during the 2001/02 academic year. The data are taken from the National Information System for Vocational Qualifications (NISVQ)1 and the Secondary School and College Performance Tables Database. Awards coverage is for England only.

1 NISVQ has full coverage of NVQs awarded plus VRQs from three of the largest awarding bodies and other VQs from seven of the largest awarding bodies.

None of these were advertised in the Scottish Press, though where search consultants were used, they considered candidates across the UK.
