New CDI briefings on the Skills and Post-16 Education Bill

19 07.21

The CDI has recently produced two briefings to support parliamentarians in discussing and raising amendments to the Skills and Post-16 Education Bill.

These are now available on the CDI website;

These briefings are in addition to our earlier response to the White Paper.

The CDI supports the positive aspects of the Bill, such as increasing the focus on FE and reducing the disparity between higher-level technical and academic education and training. However, we feel there is an opportunity to enhance the Bill and increase impact through greater inclusion of the careers profession. Finally, we reiterate the benefit that a new Careers Strategy would bring, and that the CDI are keen to support the Government in developing this.
