Volume 503: debated on Thursday 7 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what proportion of 14 to 19 engagement programme funding is allocated to (a) schools, (b) colleges and (c) other organisations in 2009/10; and if he will make a statement. (308178)

The Key Stage 4 engagement programme is a locally shaped and managed initiative and local authorities have developed a range of models for delivering the programme in their area. DCSF funding for 2009/10 totals £19,334,000 and this is used in different ways by the 142 local authorities involved. Detailed data breaking down how each local authority is deploying this resource are not kept centrally and therefore it is not possible to provide the overview sought by the hon. Member.
