§ 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.
