HC Deb 16 May 1963 vol 677 c181W
Sir K. Thompson

asked the Minister of Education what facilities are provided for school leavers who fail to secure suitable employment to continue their education; and what steps are taken to acquaint young people of the existence of the facilities.

Sir E. Boyle

Local education authorities, head teachers and youth employment officers encourage young people to stay on at school or to attend full-time or part-time courses at colleges of further education.

For those school leavers who do not wish to continue their formal education, a number of authorities have provided special courses, or made exceptional arrangements to enable young people to attend existing courses until they can find a job.
