Written answers (Question to Social)

The person concerned was interviewed by her local employment services on 23 April 2013 at which time all her training options were explored. As part of her career planning, it was agreed that she needed to improve her information technology skills before pursuing further training. To this end, she was given an application form for a technical employment support grant. However, the form has not yet been returned. If the person concerned wishes to proceed, she should return the completed form to her local employment services office.
