Apprentices

Volume 475: debated on Friday 9 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills pursuant to the Answer of 25 April 2008, Official Report, columns 2289-92W on apprentices, to the hon. Member for Edmonton, how those apprenticeships in Wirral Local Authority area referred to breakdown by (a) sex of apprentice and (b) type of occupation in which the apprenticeship was offered; if he will publish the further information he has regarding Wirral; and if he will make a statement. (204666)

The information requested is provided in the following tables. I am glad our apprenticeships programme is helping so many young people in the Wirral and that the number of people completing an apprenticeship framework is increasing. In World-class Apprenticeship we outline how we will continue to expand the programme to ensure that all suitably qualified young people who want an apprenticeship will be able to do so from 2013.

Number of apprenticeship framework completions for the 2002/03 and 2005/06 academic years for learners residing in Wirral local authority as recorded on the Learning and Skills Council Work Based Learning Individualised Learner Record
