Schools: Choice Advisers

Volume 482: debated on Tuesday 11 November 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many choice advisers are employed by each local authority; and if he will make a statement. (234752)

The following table shows the number of Choice Advisers in each local authority as at 1 September 2008, based on information provided voluntarily by local authorities to CAS and QAN. The table shows the total number of advisers employed in each local authority, not full-time equivalents.

Local authorities have the flexibility to make Choice Advice available in the way which best meets local needs. Some may employ only one Choice Adviser while others may find they need more than one. Similarly, some may employ full-time Choice Advisers while others may employ Choice Advisers on a seasonal basis.
