Leighton Andrews, Minister for Education and Skills
On 10 September 2012, I issued a second consultation on proposals for registration of the education workforce in Wales. I am today issuing a summary of the responses to the consultation.
This consultation provided further details on the proposals for registration of the wider education workforce in Wales, which I will legislate for in the forthcoming Education (Wales) Bill. My officials will continue to work with key stakeholders as proposals are developed to ensure that the registration scheme is fit for purpose.
These are important changes and part of the package of reforms I intend to bring forward for education over the course of this Welsh Government term.
This statement is being issued during recess in order to keep members informed. Should members wish me to make a further statement or to answer questions on this when the Assembly returns I would be happy to do so.
