EDUCATION AND SKILLS

Apprenticeships

Mr. Davey: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how much is allocated to spending on Adult Apprenticeship pilots at (a) Level 2, (b) Level 3 and (c) graduate apprenticeships funded by the Learning and Skills Council; and whether these funds are included in the (i) work-based learning and (ii) NETP budget allocations. [43086]

Phil Hope: The Learning and Skills Council National Office have allocated £2 million to the Apprenticeships for Adult entry trials, from their Workforce Development budget. This is not part of either the work based learning or NETP funding lines. The trials include programmes at Level 2 and Level 3. It is not possible at this stage to identify the proportion of that funding allocated at each level. Graduate Apprenticeships are not part of this trial.

Mrs. Curtis-Thomas: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many and what percentage of (a) apprenticeships and (b) advanced apprenticeships supported by the Learning and Skills Council which commenced in 2002 have been successfully completed. [43127]

Phil Hope: The following table shows completion rates for apprenticeship programmes from 2002/03 to 2004/05.

Beverley Hughes: My right hon. Friend the Minister for Children, Young People and Families replied to my right hon. Friend's letter of 30 November on 11 January.

Maria Eagle: The Department does not own any (a) land and (b) property in Castle Point.

Departmental Targets

Bill Rammell: The Department for Education and Skills publishes progress against PSA targets through its Departmental Annual Report and Autumn Performance Report.

Education Costs

Mr. Laws: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what her latest estimate is of the total average

cost to public funds per student of attending higher education in England, including maintenance costs and student tuition; and if she will make a statement. [41439]

Bill Rammell: The planned level of public funding for higher education institutions in the financial year 2005–06 is £4,630 1 per full-time equivalent fundable student 2 , excluding income from tuition fees. This represents the DfES grant per student for teaching and research.

The provisional average fee expenditure per English domiciled student support scheme student in academic year 2005/06 is £540 1 per student (based on fee support eligible students). The provisional average cost of maintenance expenditure (allowances and grants 3 ) in AY 2005/06 is £280 per student (based on students eligible for support).

The provisional average amount of student loan taken out by English domiciled student support scheme students taking out a loan in AY 2005/06 is estimated to be £3,490. This represents the average cash value of maintenance loans advanced. In resource cost terms this would be around £770 (based on a RAB 4 charge of 22 per cent. under a 2.2 per cent. discount rate).

The different components of the total average cost to public funds given cannot be sensibly aggregated to give an overall cost per student as they relate to different student populations.

Mr. Laws: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what proportion of the total costs of higher education were paid by (a) tuition fees and (b) public subsidy in each year from 1992–93; what the estimate is for each year to 2007–08; and if she will make a statement. [41445]

Bill Rammell: The following table shows the proportion of total income to English HE institutions from tuition fees and public funding, for years for which data is available. Figures for years beyond 2003/04 are not available because we do not estimate future income to institutions.

1994/951995/961996/971997/981998/99

(22) Both proportions will include tuition fee income from public sources, which accounted for around 9 per cent. of total income in 2003/04. Total income to institutions will also include (non-tuition fee) income from private sources.
