Health Select Committee’s Report on Education, Training and Workforce (Government Response)

Volume 549: debated on Thursday 6 September 2012

The House of Commons Health Select Committee published its report on education, training and workforce planning on 23 May 2012. We have today laid before Parliament the “Government response to the House of Commons Health Select Committee First Report of Session 21012-13: Education, Training and Workforce Planning” (Cm 8435).

The Committee welcomed the overall direction of the Government’s reforms in this area, including the establishment of Health Education England and Local Education and Training Boards, though it called for more detail and clarity on particular aspects. The Government’s response highlights a great deal of progress that has been made in establishing the new system of education and training since the publication of the Committee’s report.
