Apprentices: Financial Institutions

Volume 497: debated on Wednesday 14 October 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills how many apprenticeships in financial institutions in the City of London there are. (290272)

We do not hold data centrally that can be used to accurately estimate the total number of apprentices within financial institutions in the City of London.

The London Apprenticeships Taskforce is working to expand apprenticeships in all sectors in London, including financial services. Activity to develop apprenticeships in this sector is being supported by the National Skills Academy for Financial Services. Eskills (the sector skills council for business and information technology) is also developing an IT London Action Plan, which aims to expand apprenticeships in London, including in the financial services sector.
