Adult Careers Service

Volume 464: debated on Monday 8 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills what the (a) annual budget and (b) staff complement of the new adult careers service will be; and when will it be established. (154313)

Our aim is for the new, universal adult careers service to be fully operational in 2010-11 and to trial aspects of the new service, including new skills health checks, during 2008-09. We are working with the Department for Work and Pensions and other partners on the development and planning of the new service and decisions on resources for the new service will be taken in the context of the Comprehensive Spending Review.
