To ask the Minister for Employment and Learning to detail the skills areas of all apprentices currently under training in all establishments funded by his Department.
The most recent edition of my Department's ApprenticeshipsNI Statistical Bulletin provides key information on the ApprenticeshipsNI programme and contains data to July 2013. The Bulletin is published on a quarterly basis with the statistics presented covering a range of topics including starts, occupancy, leavers and outcomes for participants on ApprenticeshipsNI.
An extract from the bulletin, detailing programme participation, aligned to apprenticeships frameworks, has been placed in the Assembly Library and on the DEL website on http:// www.delni.gov.uk/. A full copy of the Statistical Bulletin can be viewed by following the link below.
As the member will be aware, back in February I announced a major review of my Department's apprenticeship policy. This review, which is all-encompassing in nature, is progressing as planned, and I will be reporting its findings shortly.
