§ 32. Mr. Bright
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many pupils are pursuing courses which will be credited by the certificate of pre-vocational education.
§ Mr. Chris Patten
Substantive courses leading to the certificate of pre-vocational education were introduced in September 1985 and currently 18,115 students are registered on these courses at schools and colleges. Additionally about 19,500 students are attending other courses, which, under interim accreditation arrangements, could lead to the award of a CPVE.
