Poor advice for Welsh pupils

Click to follow
Welsh school-leavers are outclassed by their English counterparts, according to a Welsh Affairs Select Committee report published yesterday. It found that competition between Wales's Training and Education Councils, local education authorities and the Further Education Funding Council was unhelpful to students planning their working life.

Conflicting advice by the careers service added to the confusion and research into the role of advisers was identified in the report as a priority, it concluded. The remoteness of further education colleges' governors was another stumbling block.
