§ Dr. Howells
My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State has this week launched Investing in Young People, a major new strategy aimed at improving the range and quality of education and training available to all young people aged 16 to 19. The measures which make up this strategy are aimed at giving everyone the chance to gain recognised qualifications which will give them the best possible start in the workplace. They include measures to tackle underachievement among this age group, and bring back into education those who have dropped out.
