Comment on new school information regulations

Commenting on a recent duty placed on local authorities in relation to raising awareness of university technical colleges (UTCs) with pupils and their families, Alison Michalska, ADCS President, said:

“Local authorities have a duty to promote education options for children and young people in their local areas, most do this via their website. Changes to regulations regarding school information earlier this year mean that local authorities must now write to parents to tell them about the option for their child to leave school aged 14 to attend a local university technical college or studio school, as this represents a new burden for already stretched council budgets this funding goes towards the costs of this activity. Where it is possible local authorities will always use the cheapest form of communication such as email however some will have to write out to parents.”
