§ Mr. Paice
The budgets of individual training and enterprise councils are treated as commercial in confidence between the Department and TECs until the autumn, after TECs have completed negotiations with providers of training.
The following tables give regional allocations of training for work and youth training budgets for 1995–96.
On TfW the fees budget to TECs is split 25 per cent. for starts and 75 per cent. for outcomes. Starts payments are not made for YT except for certain pilot schemes. Outcome budgets on YT differ with individual TECs, but, 461W except for pilots, are up to a maximum of 40 per cent. of the total budget. Separate budgets are not dedicated for those with special needs on either programme. There are no specific budgets for administrative costs within these programmes, though TECs receive a management fee as a contribution to their administrative expenditure across all their activities.
