I've had a brilliant afternoon in Parliament today. My Technical and Further Education Bill has passed after final considerations by the House of Lords.

I've worked hard to bring this bill through the house since the first reading in October last year. This legislation will help to do a number of important things, which include:

1) Creating a new Institute of Apprenticeships and Technical Education that will work with employers to design high quality qualifications for apprentices and students who have chosen a technical education.

2) Guaranteeing special protections for students in the very unlikely event that a college faces extreme financial difficulties and becomes insolvent.

3) Ensuring that schools allow visits from apprenticeship and technical education bodies, UTCs and Further Education Colleges to give their students good advice on skills and a real choice for their future education.

This is the first ever Bill that I have taken through Parliament. It has involved a lot of work with officials at the Department for Education and I'm very proud of the whole team that has supported me with it.

I hope that it will make a big difference to skills, apprenticeships, technical education and careers guidance in our country.
