unstar this property answer text <p>The Department for Education collects data on the reasons for which children have been placed in secure children’s homes. There are three categories: those that have been detained or sentenced by the criminal courts; those placed in a criminal justice context and those placed on ‘welfare grounds’ under the Children Act 1989 (the Act). On 31 March 2014 there were 104 children placed in Secure Children’s Homes across England and Wales on welfare grounds. Within this latter category, we do not hold data that allows us to determine whether each child has been convicted of a crime.</p><p>Restricting the liberty of a child outside of the criminal justice context is a serious step. Section 25 of the Act sets out the criteria which must be considered before placing a young person in secure accommodation.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Department for Education does not hold information about the impact of devolving the duty on young people in Wirral or the Liverpool City region specifically.</p><p>Since 2012, all maintained schools in England have been legally required to secure independent careers guidance for their pupils. The decision to devolve this responsibility to schools was made in light of evidence that the previous Connexions Service was not meeting young people’s needs.</p><p>In 2013, Ofsted’s study of the early implementation of this duty found that much of schools’ provision was not yet good enough. It also found that young people needed more opportunities to find out about careers from employers.</p><p>In response the Government published an Inspiration Vision statement and new statutory guidance and departmental advice on careers guidance and inspiration, which is effective from September 2014. This provides a clear framework and practical support for schools to help them inspire their pupils through more contact with the world of work. Ofsted is now giving careers guidance a higher priority in school inspections and we will work with them to monitor carefully the impact of the statutory guidance and the wider improvements that government has put in place.</p>
