COMMENTS
It appears that a(n)<3 for n>2 (checked up to 10^7).
This comment is surely true since every prime except 3 equals 1 or 2 mod 3, so the addition of 10 == 1 mod 3 once or twice makes it divisible by 3. So (3 - (prime(n) mod 3)) is an upper bound. - Andrey Zabolotskiy, Nov 01 2016

EXAMPLE
For n=1, 10+2=3x4 so a(1)=1;
For n=2, 13 and 23 are prime, but then 30+3=3x11 so a(2)=3;
For n=3, 10+5=3x5 so a(3)=1;
For n=4, 17 is prime, but then 20+7=3x9 so a(4)=2.
PROG
(PARI) isc(n) = (n > 1) && !isprime(n);
a(n) = my(k = 0, p = prime(n)); while(!isc(p+10*k), k++); k; \\ Michel Marcus, Sep 27 2016
