Background and Summary

Part 6: Education Evaluation

63.Sections 78 to 80 are intended to make the sharing of information between Government Departments and schools, colleges and other assessment centres easier. This is expected to have the following benefits: enable parents and students to make more informed choices concerning education and employment destinations; help providers of education and training to evaluate their effectiveness in delivering qualifications; help schools and colleges to assess their information, advice and guidance services, and, along with higher education institutions, to tailor their provision to labour market demands; inform Government about which qualifications and courses lead to sustained employment and higher incomes, and the link between family income and education outcomes; and make data available and more transparent.
