Departmental Vacancies

Volume 451: debated on Monday 30 October 2006

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Constitutional Affairs what proportion of vacancies in her Department in the last 12 months required candidates to have at least a grade C in (a) English and (b) mathematics GCSE. (96747)

The majority of vacancies within the Department for Constitutional Affairs require either GCSE's (including English Language) at Grade C and above or equivalent or relevant administrative experience. We would incur disproportionate costs on providing proportionate figures on vacancies that have required a grade C in (a) English and (b) Maths.

For posts within the senior civil service the requirement is professional qualifications and/or a proven track record of skills and experience.
