Employment Schemes: Incentives

Volume 458: debated on Monday 19 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what steps he is taking to ensure brokers under the Train to Gain programme are incentivised to arrange placements, rather than visits to employers which do not result in placements; and if he will make a statement. (126580)

Train to Gain brokers are incentivised on the basis of employer engagements, rather than on visits. An employer is considered to be engaged where the broker has undertaken an analysis of training needs and identified suitable providers. The Learning and Skills Council is actively performance managing the organisations contracted to deliver the service to ensure their effectiveness and efficiency.
