Apprentices: Greater London

Volume 485: debated on Wednesday 10 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills what estimate his Department has made of the number of apprenticeships taken up in (a) Wandsworth and (b) London in each month since January 2006, broken down by apprenticeship type. (242289)

Table 1 shows the number of apprenticeship starts in the region of London from January 2006 to July 2007, by the month in which the apprenticeship started. Figures are presented up to the end of the 2006-07 academic year, the latest year for which fully audited data are available.

Numbers for Wandsworth local authority are too small to split by the month in which the course has started.

Table 2 shows the number of apprenticeship starts in Wandsworth local authority, London and a total for all regions for the 2005-06 and 2006-07 academic year.
