Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations which apply to Wales make provision for extending the requirement to provide a programme of careers education to include pupils who are over compulsory school age and students aged between 16 and 19 attending institutions within the further education sector.

Regulation 2 extends the requirement in section 43 of the Education Act 1997 to provide a programme of careers education to cover pupils aged between 14 and 19, rather than 14—16 as section 43 currently requires.

Regulation 3 imposes an entirely new requirement for students aged 16—19 attending further education institutions to be provided with a programme of careers education.
