Submitted by: South Central Region

The National Council of Women in Conference assembled, urges the Department of Education and Science, the Secretary of State for Scotland, Local Education Authorities, Headmistresses and Headmasters, to make greater use of the machinery which is available, thus making it possible for all schools to give adequate advice to their pupils about the courses provided at the Universities, and about other means of obtaining professional training and their relevance to future employment. The National Council of Women also urges the University Authorities to take further steps to bring to the attention of students throughout their University career expert advice and information about future employment opportunities and the qualifications needed.
