EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
    These Regulations require the governing body of every county, voluntary, grant-maintained school or grant-maintained special school in Wales which provides secondary education to provide information to pupils with respect to institutions within the further education sector. The information to be provided takes the form of copies of the information made available to the school for distribution, pursuant to section 50 of the Further and Higher Education Act 1992, by the governing bodies of institutions within the further education sector in Wales. The copies are to be given by the governing body of the school to all pupils who are in the second year of the fourth key stage. If the governing body of an institution within the further education sector does not provide enough copies for such pupils to each have one, the governing body of the school will determine how such copies as are provided are to be distributed amongst such pupils.
    The publication of information pursuant to section 50 of the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 is in Wales governed by the Education (Further Education Institutions Information) (Wales) Regulations 1993. They require the governing bodies of institutions within the further education sector in Wales to publish information about the educational achievements of their students and their careers after completing their courses. Those regulations are amended so that grant-maintained special schools are included in the list of schools to which information must be provided.
