The Department no longer has dedicated academy brokers. We have procured a pool of educational experts, through open competition. Notionally, each Regional Schools Commissioner (RSC) will have a pool of experts to support them in their work, to call upon as required.

The Department has spent the following on Education Advisers, doing brokerage work, in each financial year since 2010:

2010/11 £1,497,856 [1]

2011/12 £2,829,582.59[2]

2012/13 £4,438,358.13 [3]

2013/14 £3,031,794.39 [4]

2014/15 £2,192,228
