star this property answer text <p>University technical colleges (UTCs) harness students’ talents, offering them technical learning alongside GCSEs and A levels, and providing them with knowledge and skills which employers value. The programme is still at an early stage. The best UTCs, such as UTC Reading, are providing excellent education, which is reflected in their exam results.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Like all academies, each university technical college (UTC) is responsible for publicising their school and encouraging applications. Officials from the Department for Education and the Baker Dearing Educational Trust provide UTCs with advice to support pupil recruitment, drawing on the best practice from UTCs and other new schools. Statutory guidance to schools on careers guidance is clear that they should allow UTCs to engage with their pupils on their premises. This guidance can be found at GOV.UK: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/careers-guidance-provision-for-young-people-in-schools" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/careers-guidance-provision-for-young-people-in-schools</a>.

We have funded a new, independent careers and enterprise company to help businesses and schools to engage with each other more easily so that young people get the inspiration and guidance they need to leave school or college ready to succeed in working life.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Business people also have an important role to play in school governance, bringing a range of transferable skills to help governing bodies carry out their demanding strategic functions. In May 2014 we launched the Inspiring Governors Alliance to bring together all organisations with a role to play in increasing both demand for and supply of high quality governors, particularly from the world of work. We have awarded £1m of funding in 2015-16 to embed a strategic partnership between SGOSS, Governors for Schools and the Education and Employers’ Taskforce at the heart of the alliance to engage employers and help schools find the high quality governors they need.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The abiding principle of our plan for education is that schools should do everything possible to prepare young people for life in modern Britain. Ensuring that young people are prepared for the workplace and equipped with the skills, experience and qualifications that employers want is central to this.</p><p>My Rt hon. friend the Secretary of State for Education has made clear that she wants to see improvements to the quality of careers advice and guidance available to young people, with more schools and employers working together to ensure that pupils make the transition from education into work successfully. We have issued revised statutory guidance, underpinning the duty to secure independent careers guidance, to strengthen the requirement for schools to build links with employers to inspire and mentor students. We have also asked the National Careers Service to broker those relationships where that is needed. We are keeping these changes under review and are considering what further action may be necessary.</p><p>We are linking the education system more closely to the world of work with an emphasis on learning practical skills through new Technical Awards for 14- to- 16-year-olds, and Tech Levels for 16- to- 19-year-olds, providing a high-quality vocational alternative to A levels that leads to a recognised occupation. The introduction of Study Programmes for all 16- to- 19-year-olds is also expanding the provision of genuine work experience and work-related learning for all post-16 students. We have invested in new apprenticeships and introduced traineeships to give young people the skills and experience they need to compete successfully for a job.</p>

However, local authorities collect information on 16 to 18-year-olds who are NEET in each local authority area in England. This information, including data for Lancashire, is published annually on GOV.UK [1], and we will add figures for 2014 on 19 March. This local authority information shows a total number of 16 to-18-year-olds NEET in England of 100,930 at the end of 2012, and 92,170 at the end of 2013, showing a reduction of 8,760.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>It should be noted that the total number of young people NEET in the local authority data is lower than that in the national estimates.
