§ Mr. Leighton
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment whether his Department's list of awards eligible for funding by the Training, Enterprise and Education Directorate is available for planning purposes to organisations such as further education colleges, managing agents and awarding bodies.
Full details of vocational qualifications accepted by the Employment Department for TEC funding appear in the National Council for Vocational Qualifications database. This is available for purchase by any training organisation or other interested party from NCVQ. A written summary of this information, in the form of vocational qualification of listings, is circulated by the Department to TECs to fulfil the obligations of the ED/TEC contract. TECs are free to pass on this information to whomever they wish.
