[6749/12]

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn Details of the non-capital allocation to each Vocational Educational Committee in 2011 are included in the following table.

These allocations enable the VECs to provide a broad range of educational services. In addition to providing post-primary education and further and adult education, VECs also have responsibilities in areas such as community education, training for early school leavers, basic literacy courses, traveller education and the provision of youth services. My Department provides the majority of the funding required by VECs for the delivery of these programmes. Accordingly, the figures in the table include funding for pay to VEC staff (including teachers), non-pay for the day-to-day running of schools, specific grants (e.g. book grant, transition year [399]programme), targeted expenditure (e.g. DEIS funding), funding for further and adult education (e.g. Youthreach and VTOS) and funding for student grants.
