The majority of MPs voted against requiring the Government to produce a strategy on careers education for those in apprenticeships and technical or occupational education.
MPs were considering the Technical and Further Education Bill.
The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was titled: Careers education: duty to publish strategy and began:
- “‘(1) The Secretary of State shall publish a strategy for the purposes of improving careers education for persons receiving education or training—
- (a) in the course of an approved English apprenticeship;
- (b) for the purposes of an approved technical education qualification; or
- (c) for the purposes of approved steps towards occupational competence.
