Vocational Education

Volume 472: debated on Monday 25 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills what proportion of his staff responsible for work on skills possess a vocational qualification. (178197)

DIUS staff records are not yet kept on a single database system. Until this is the case, staff records are kept on systems in BERR and DCSF, depending on which Department the individual transferred from.

There have been no formal processes in either of the two Departments for holding such data records. To gather this data to answer this question would incur disproportionate cost.
