§ 33. Helen Jackson
To ask the Minister what guidance she gives to public authorities on training women for managerial positions. 
§ Ms Hewitt
While it is not my role to offer such guidance to public authorities, I do of course continue to work with others to ensure that women are encouraged to train for managerial positions and progress to senior and managerial positions in our public authorities. The Centre 1099W for Management and Policy Studies, which is at the heart of Government, offers a number of courses which specifically targets the personal development of women.
