Volume 481: debated on Thursday 23 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families (1) what the budget of the Young Gifted and Talented programme is in 2008-09; (228795)

(2) what the value is of the contract awarded to CfBT to deliver the Young Gifted and Talented Programme.

The cost of the contract with CfBT for the Young Gifted and Talented (YG and T) programme is commercial in confidence. The Department has historically spent some £10 million to £20 million annually on the full national programme for gifted and talented education, of which YG and T now forms a significant part.
