HC Deb 23 March 2000 vol 346 c613W
Mr. Neil Turner

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what progress has been made towards establishing the central Government national training organisation; and if she will make a statement. [116120]

Mr. Stringer

The Central Government National Training Organisation was launched today. The Government made a commitment to establish a National Training Organisation for the civil service in the Modernising Government White Paper.

The CGNTO aims to:

  • Make a reality of the civil services's commitment to lifelong learning and employability;
  • identifying training, development and learning needs for the majority of civil servants;
  • develop a strategy to address those needs, ensuring that this reflects the Modernising Government Agenda;
  • raise standards of training, development and learning across Central Government;
  • provide a means of learning from and with other sectors, through NTO network.
