Volume 507: debated on Tuesday 9 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families (1) how many colleges in the London borough of Tower Hamlets had an application for accreditation refused in the last 12 months; (314850)

(2) how many colleges in the London borough of Tower Hamlets lost their accreditation in the last 12 months.

[holding answer 3 February 2010]: I have been asked to reply.

The UK Border Agency does not hold figures on the number of colleges applying for accreditation from one of its approved accrediting bodies for the purposes of educational quality. However, a total of eight colleges in the London borough of Tower Hamlets had an application for a Tier 4 Sponsor Licence refused in the last 12 months.
