Teachers: Training

Volume 475: debated on Thursday 8 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families pursuant to the answer of 28 April 2008, Official Report, column 250W, on teachers: training, how much has been allocated for spending on the national strategies programmes in each year from 2008-09 to 2011-12; and if he will make a statement. (203905)

The expected spending on the National Strategies programmes for the period 2008-09 to 2010-11 will be in the region of £488 million, £525 million and £561 million respectively. The increased spending reflects the phased roll-out of the Every Child a Reader, Every Child Counts and Every Child a Writer intervention programmes for children in primary schools.

Funding beyond the 2007 comprehensive spending review has yet to be determined.
