Case law update 19 - Children and Families Act

Steve BroachAuthor Steve BroachDate 13 Jul 2017

This is part of our case law series reviewing judgements relating to the implementation of the Children and Families Act 2014.

Each review looks at a specific case and explains the potential implications for parents, local authorities and sector practitioners. The reviews have been produced for us by Barrister Steve Broach.

In this update, the Upper Tribunal clarified the exclusion of ‘higher education’ from the scope of the Children and Families Act 2014, emphasising that this only applies to higher education courses, not other courses which may be offered by or with higher education institutions.
