Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009

Part 12: Miscellaneous

33.This Part obliges schools in England, when providing pupils with a programme of careers education, to provide information on 16-18 education or training options and, specifically, information on apprenticeships. It also makes amendments to change the way in which local education authorities provide information about expenditure on schools, allows for data necessary to support the “Raising the Participation Age” policy to flow to LEAs and makes changes which would mean that recipients of student loans would not reduce their liability to repay these if they entered into Individual Voluntary Arrangements. It also allows FE institutions in Wales to be authorised to award foundation degrees.
