Croeso i gyfarfod y Pwyllgor Plant, Pobl Ifanc ac Addysg heddiw.

Welcome to this meeting of the Children, Young People, and Education Committee.

I'd like to welcome Members to the meeting of the Children, Young People, and Education Committee. The public items of this meeting are being broadcast live on Senedd.tv. and the Record of Proceedings will be published as usual. The meeting is bilingual, and simultaneous translation from Welsh to English is available. We've received apologies from Laura Jones this morning. Are there any declarations of interest from Members? I see there are no declarations.

2. Papurau i’w nodi
2. Papers to note

We'll go on to the next item, which is papers to note. As Members can see, there a number of papers to note. We have 23 altogether. All the details of the papers are set out on the agenda and in the paper pack. Are Members content to note the papers together? I see that Members are content to note those papers.

We'll move on to item 3. Sorry, Sioned.

Sorry, Jayne. On the paper that we received from the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service, paper No. 8, there was mention of careers information, advice and guidance, and the need to make sure that that is embedded within the curriculum in primary and early secondary school years in order to make sure there's more understanding of the advantages of apprenticeships. And I was wondering, perhaps in our work, our checking on the curriculum, that we could specifically have a look at that as a part of that work, because it's something that they draw attention to.


Yes, I'm sure we can do that, Sioned. Thank you for raising that. So, are Members content to note all those papers? Yes, all content.

3. Cynnig o dan Reol Sefydlog 17.42(ix) i benderfynu gwahardd y cyhoedd o weddill y cyfarfod

Okay, so we'll move on to the next item.
