Making essay mills illegal under new legislation will help protect students from falling prey to the 'deceptive marketing techniques of contract cheating services', the Department for Education has said.

Careers education in schools will also be strengthened to ensure all pupils have opportunities to learn about all the technical education options available to them; including apprenticeships, T-levels and traineeships.

'We are taking steps to ban these cheating services.
