Young People's Learning Agency

Volume 718: debated on Thursday 8 April 2010


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what efficiency gains they expect the Young People's Learning Agency to make in 2010–11. [HL3180]

Efficient operation and value for money are clear priorities for the Young People's Learning Agency (YPLA) and the identification of opportunities to improve value for money and excellence of delivery will be an important part of the successful delivery of their remit.

The YPLA came into effect on 1 April 2010, and 2010-11 will therefore be its first year of operation. YPLA budgets will be confirmed annually in a grant letter.

The administration budget contained in the grant letter for 2010-11 will already reflect the level of efficiency at which we want the YPLA to operate in its first year and will form a baseline against which subsequent efficiencies can be determined.
