Departmental Vocational Training

Volume 477: debated on Thursday 12 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills for what proportion of its staff his Department has provided vocational training in the last three years. (209432)

The Department was formed as a result of Machinery of Government changes in June 2007. The Department's people information is maintained on the HR management systems of the two Departments from which staff were transferred, namely BERR and DCSF. Neither of these Departments hold information on vocational training in the form requested centrally and this could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
