To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many apprentices employed by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills on 1 July 2013 were (1) under the age of 21, (2) aged between 21 and 25, and (3) aged over 25.

On July 1 2013, of the apprentices employed by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, 6 were under the age of 2l, none were aged between 21 and 25 and 24 were over the age of 25.

Apprenticeships have since been offered to an additional 21 people between 21 and 60.

In September 2013 a further 6 apprentices under the age of 21 will join the Department and we expect at least another 6 apprentices in this age group to join BIS in the new year.
