Apprentices: Hertfordshire

Volume 488: debated on Wednesday 25 February 2009

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) Hemel Hempstead and (b) Hertfordshire in each month since January 2006, broken down by apprenticeship type. (242677)

Table 1 shows the total number of apprenticeship starts in Hertfordshire local authority from January 2006 to July 2007, by the month in which the apprenticeship was started. Figures are presented up to the end of the 2006/07 academic year, the latest year for which fully audited data is available. Information by apprenticeship type/level is too small to split by month in which the course has started.

Numbers for Hemel Hempstead constituency are too small to split by the month in which the course has started.

Table 2 shows the total number of apprenticeship starts in Hemel Hempstead constituency, Hertfordshire local authority and a total for all regions for the 2005/06 and 2006/07 academic years.
