The National Apprenticeships Vacancy Matching Service is being developed by the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) to provide a high quality service to employers wishing to recruit apprentices, and to young people and adults considering an apprenticeship. This service will help deliver the objective outlined in World-class Apprenticeships to expand and improve the quality of our apprenticeships programme. The LSC is contracting with Capgemini for the provision of the IT system. The LSC is separately contracting with S-Cool for apprenticeship on-line pilots in three areas, including Hampshire. Contracts for goods and services are commercially sensitive and cannot be made available to right hon. and hon. Members. I have asked Mark Haysom, chief executive of the LSC, to write to the right hon. Member, copying his reply to me, outlining the Vacancy Matching Service and Capgemini's role in supplying these services.
