Table 2 shows participation by learners from the EU in further education provision in England in 2007-08, only where they have been recorded on the FE

Mr. Clappison: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department which 20 non-EU nationalities received the most work permits for (a) doctors and (b) nurses in the last (i) 12 months and (ii) four quarters. 
Mr. Woolas: The work permit scheme closed on 26 November 2008 and was replaced by the points based system. The following table shows the number of work permits which were approved for applications from nurses and doctors from the top 20 countries, in the 12 months prior to the closure of the scheme.
|Work permit approvals|
|Top 20 countries||January to December||April to June||July to September||October to December||Total|
|(1) Indicates 1 or 2. Notes: 1. Figures are rounded to nearest 5. 2. Because of rounding, figures may not add up to totals shown. 3. The figures quoted are not provided under National Statistics protocols and have been derived from local management information and are therefore provisional and subject to change. Caveats: The figures do not equate to the number of individual nationals who were granted permits because they include those applications approved to extend or amend an existing permit or where the individual has moved to another job with a different employer. Not all those who were granted a permit took up the job and some may have been refused entry clearance or further leave to remain.|
