EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

Section 49B of the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 enables the Welsh Ministers to share “destination information” with further education institutions in Wales.

These Regulations make provision in respect of which activities of a student, that has left a further education institution in Wales, count as “destination information” for the purposes of section 49B(2) and 49B(3) of the Further and Higher Education Act 1992. Regulation 3 sets out the activities and the time period in which they must occur.

The Welsh Ministers’ Code of Practice on the carrying out of Regulatory Impact Assessments was considered in relation to these Regulations. As a result it was not considered necessary to carry out a regulatory impact assessment as to the likely costs and benefits of complying with these Regulations.

(1)

1992 c. 13. Section 49B was inserted by section 80 of the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015 (c. 26). Section 89(4) was amended by section 29 of, and paragraphs 6 and 11 of, Schedule 1 to, the Further Education and Training Act 2007 (c. 25).
