An error has been identified in the written answer given on 04 March 2019.

The correct answer should have been:

The department currently employs 209 apprentices. This can be broken down into the following groups in the attached table, which also shows the proportion against the total number of employees.

Regarding the proportion of apprentices employed at the Institute for Apprenticeships, this is a matter for the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education. I have asked the Chief Executive, Sir Gerry Berragan, to write to the hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne and a copy of his reply will be placed in the Libraries of both Houses.

The Education and Skills Funding Agency is responsible for apprenticeship strategy, policy and delivery and there are 317 employees in this division. Within the Education and Skills Funding Agency, 5 8 employees working on apprenticeships strategy, policy and delivery are apprentices, which represents 1.6% 2.5% of their workforce. the total of 317 employees.
