Sub-Committee on Education, Skills and the Economy: Forthcoming Report
Publication of report – Careers education, information, advice and guidance
The Sub-Committee on Education, Skills and the Economy publishes its First Report, Careers education, information, advice and guidance (HC 205) at 00.01am on Tuesday 5 July 2016.
The Sub-Committee was formed in December 2015 from the Education Committee and the Business, Innovation and Skills Committee to examine issues around education and skills, and how they impact upon business and the economy. It selected the topic of careers education, information, advice and guidance as its first inquiry, aiming to look at the quality and impartiality of current provision, how careers advice in schools and colleges can help to match skills with labour market needs, and the potential for employers to play a greater role in careers advice. It would also examine the role and relationships of bodies such as the new Careers and Enterprise Company and the National Careers Service.
