EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations are made under section 46 of the Education Act 1997 and apply to schools in England. They extend the relevant phase during which a pupil must be provided with independent careers guidance under section 42A of that Act. Section 42A previously applied only to pupils from school year 9 to 11. These Regulations extend the relevant phase so that section 42A applies to pupils from school year 8 to 13.

Regulation 3 disapplies, in respect of pupils over compulsory school age, the requirement in section 42A(4)(b) for careers guidance to include information on options concerning 16 to 18 education or training.

An impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no, or no significant, impact on the private, voluntary or public sectors is foreseen.
