Dáil Éireann Debate
73. Deputy Joe Carey asked the Minister for Education and Skills the criteria required for persons wishing to provide training under the labour market activation fund; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [26759/11]
The Labour Market Activation Fund, 2010 provided €32m for 55 projects in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors offering 12,000 education and training places for the unemployed during the period 1 June 2010 to 30th June 2011. Training on all funded programmes is now completed and no budgetary provision was made for a further iteration of this fund in 2011.
My Department is currently undertaking an evaluation of all aspects of the 2010 Fund and the impacts of all funded projects will be fully assessed and results made available to Government, with a view to informing the consideration of any future iterations of this funding model.
