Section 53: Provision of transport etc for persons of sixth form age: duty to have regard to section 15ZA duty

153.Under section 41 (which inserts new section 15ZA into the Education Act 1996), LEAs will be responsible for commissioning education and training provision for young people aged 16-18. This section amends section 509AB (the sixth form transport duty) so that LEAs are required to consider what they are required to do under 15ZA(1) in relation to persons of sixth form age, when drawing up their transport policy statement for young people of sixth form age. This will ensure that transport arrangements are not made in isolation and that LEAs consider their commissioning duties, including particular relevant factors (for example, the location of the provision), when developing their local transport policy.
