HC Deb 11 May 1995 vol 259 c578W
Mr. Barron

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how many, and what proportion of, vacancies advertised by his Department, and by each of his Department's agencies, in the last three years have listed the attainment of NVQs as an acceptable entry requirement; and, of those, how many have required (i) level 1 NVQs, (ii) level 2 NVQs, (iii) level 3 NVQs and (iv) other level NVQs. [22972]

Mr. Lang

My Department and agencies do not specifically list Scottish vocational qualifications—the Scottish equivalent to NVQs—in their recruitment advertisements, but they make it clear that candidates with qualifications equivalent to any listed are eligible to apply.
