The purpose of the study is to assess whether five educational institutions comply with selected requirements applying to the FGU and whether the Danish Ministry of Children and Education’s supervision and guidance underpin the objective of the Act on Preparatory Basic Education and Training. The report answers the following questions:
- Do the FGU institutions comply with the requirements for course plans, evaluation and counselling interviews, teaching hours and absence management?
- Has the Ministry of Children and Education’s supervision and guidance supported the FGU institutions in meeting the objective of the act?
It is Rigsrevisionen’s assessment that the five selected FGU institutions are not complying in full with the requirements applying to the education. Most of the requirements that are not fully complied with are law requirements. The Ministry of Children and Education’s supervision and guidance have predominantly supported the objective of the act. However, the ministry could have followed up on compliance with the requirements for course plans and evaluation and counselling interviews more extensively. The extent of the ministry’s follow-up entails a risk that the students at the FGU institutions do not receive sufficient sup-port to develop their professional, personal and social skills.
Rigsrevisionen took the initiative to do the study in February 2023.
