To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, how much his Department spent on the traineeships programme in each month from August 2013 to October 2014.
16 March 2015
The amount spent on traineeships for those aged 19 and over in the 2013/14 academic year was not recorded separately to the Adult Skills Budget. Information on spend for the 2014/15 academic year is not yet available.
The estimated amount of funding provided for these traineeships in 2013/14 is £6.4m. This is based on the number of traineeships delivered by providers and is not necessarily what has been paid.
