Skills and post-16 education bill: progress of the bill

Auteur(s) :  Joe Lewis

Editeur(s) :  House of Commons Library

Date :  04/2022


The Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] was introduced in the House of Lords on 18 May 2021 and received its first reading in the House of Commons on 26 October 2021. It passed its report stage and third reading in the Commons on 21 February 2022. Consideration of amendments took place between 24 March and 7 April 2022. The Bill is now awaiting Royal Assent. The Bill aims to improve how the skills and post-16 education system functions in England. It supports the Lifetime Skills Guarantee, announced by the Prime Minister in September 2020. The Bill would implement reforms set out in the Department for Education (DfE) White Paper, Skills for Jobs: Lifelong Learning for Opportunity and Growth (January 2021). These included giving employers a greater say in skills development and introducing a Lifelong Loan Entitlement. The Bill also includes measures to address some of the recommendations of the Independent Panel Report to the Review of Post-18 Education and Funding (the Augar report), published in May 2019, particularly around increasing opportunities for flexible, lifetime learning.
