The Sub-Committee on Education, Skills and the Economy was formed in December 2015 to examine issues around education and skills, and how they impact upon business and the economy. 

The Sub-Committee published its first report on 5 July looking at Careers education, information, advice and guidance (click here). A focus of the Sub-Committee's inquiry was to look at the role of The Careers & Enterprise Company and its relationship with other bodies in education, careers and skills sectors. 

Claudia Harris, CEO of The Careers & Enterprise Company has responded to the report: "It is critical for young people that careers and enterprise support is easy to navigate. We agree with the Sub-Committee on Education, Skills and Economy's findings that strong coordination is essential and schools and colleges must be supported in accessing the different services available to them. We look forward to working with other stakeholders to consider the report in detail and respond in due course."
