To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills how much the Government spent on (a) apprenticeships and (b) apprenticeships in sales and telesales in (i) 2010-11 and (ii) 2011-12.

Government spending on apprenticeships in the 2010-11 and 2011-12 financial years is set out in Table 1 as follows.
|Table 1: Government spending on apprenticeships|
|BIS funded adult (19+) apprenticeships||DFE funded (16-18) apprenticeships|

We estimate that just over £4 million(1) of Government funding supported the delivery of sales and telesales apprenticeship frameworks in the 2010/11 academic year for those aged 16 and over. Information for the 2011/12 academic year is not available yet.
(1) Figures for estimated funding come from the individualised learner record. They provide an indication of the level of Government funding. They should not be treated as actual spend, as spending is not reported at the framework level.
