Vocational Training: Gloucestershire

Volume 468: debated on Monday 3 December 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills how many Train to Gain places have been made available in each district area in Gloucestershire. (170100)

Train to Gain is a major aspect of the drive to create a demand-led service and does not generate places in the traditional sense. Through Train to Gain, employers can access the advice and support they need to help them identify and then meet the skills their businesses need to succeed. In the first year of its operation, there were a total of 883 learners funded through Train to Gain in the Gloucestershire county council district areas. The breakdown was as follows: Cheltenham 137, Cotswold 155, Forest of Dean 68, Gloucester City 207, Stroud 226 and Tewkesbury 90.
