The Coalition government decided to abolish several school-related quangos. At the time of writing, these are: the Qualifications and Curriculum Development Agency (QCDA), the General Teaching Council for England (GTCE), the School Support Staff Negotiating Body (SSSNB), the British Educational Communications and Technology Agency (Becta), the Teachers TV Board of Governors, and the Teenage Pregnancy Independent Advisory Group (TPIAG). QCDA, GTCE and SSSNB are statutory bodies. This Standard Note provides background on these bodies and on future arrangements to cover those functions that are to be continued.
