Graduates: Vocational Training

Volume 505: debated on Tuesday 2 February 2010

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills what estimate he has made of the cost per head of providing training for all graduates under the age of 24 years who have been unemployed for at least six months. (309542)

I have been asked to reply.

The training elements of the Graduate Guarantee will be delivered through the work-focused training parts of the Six Month Offer and Young Person's Guarantee, the average costs of which are estimated to be £1,100 and £1,500, respectively.

Training typically lasts between eight and 26 weeks.
