Volume 451: debated on Monday 30 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport 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. (96746)

In the last 12 months the Department ran one external competition for 18 administrative vacancies where candidates were required to have at least five GCSEs at grade C level or equivalent, which had to include English; however, mathematics was not stipulated. A further six singleton vacancies advertised externally during the year did not set any minimum educational qualifications.
