Second reading of Technical and Further Education Bill.

‘It sets out proposals for a new insolvency regime for FE colleges, and includes plans to extend the role of the Institute for Apprenticeships, the new vocational training policing body.

According to the Department for Education’s factsheet on the bill, its aim is to “take forward the government’s reforms to technical education, which will help boost the country’s productivity by addressing skill shortages and ensuring high quality technical education”.

The first reading of the bill took place on October 27.

It will go through three more stages in the House of Commons, and then five stages in the House of Lords before it can gain Royal Assent.’ - FE Week
