[holding answer 18 March 2010]: The Children's Workforce Development Council (CWDC) was established in 2005. There was therefore no funding allocation for the 2004-05 financial year. The Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) funding allocations for each of CWDC's first three financial years, when it was an employer-led workforce reform body were; 2005-06, £960,000; 2006-07, £31,921,000 million and 2007-08, £55,181,000 million. The funding allocations for the next two years, when CWDC became an executive non departmental public body of the DCSF and experienced significant expansion to its remitted activities were; 2008-09, £82,454,000 million and 2009-10, £108,228,000 million.
