Dear Tim

I refer to your request for information in which you sought:

'Can you please provide me with a list of the employers who have hired through IT Apprenticeship (level 3) and IT traineeship
schemes?'

With regard to the second limb of your request: 'a list of the employers who have hired through IT traineeship
schemes?', I am writing to advise that we do not hold this information. A traineeship is not aligned or recorded in relation to a specific subject area (e.g. IT).

I should also advise that the Agency holds information relating to the workplaces of employers. We will therefore continue to process the first part of your request: 'a list of the employers who have hired through IT Apprenticeship (level 3)?' based on the information held, and respond as previously advised.

Yours sincerely

Dear Mr Terri

We write in response to your request for information clarified on the 6 January.

Your request was for:

A list of the employers who have hired through IT Apprenticeship (level 3) and IT traineeship schemes for the last three years of information.

Analysis has been undertaken and a report produced.(see attached).

The data in this report contains only Apprenticeship data for three years (11/12, 12/13 and 13/14). IT Traineeship data is not held, as a Traineeship is not categorised in relation to a particular discipline such as IT. The report is a list of workplaces of Employers who have been recorded by training providers as having at least 1 learner who started an apprenticeship in the relevant year.

NB. IT is determined by frameworks that fall into the Sector Subject Area of Information and Communication Technology.

We hope this information is of assistance to you.

Yours sincerely
