Next steps for technical education in England - T-levels, functional skills and Post-16 funding
Next steps for technical education in England is the focus of this Westminster Education Forum seminar looking at priorities as schools prepare for the first three programmes, due to be taught from 2020 and following the recent launch of Government’s consultation on their implementation. It will also look at further opportunities for reforming and enhancing England’s technical education system.
Overall, sessions will focus on:
T-levels - key challenges for implementing the new framework of 15 technical routes - as well as employer-led curriculum design and practicalities of incorporating work placements;
Assessment - the potential impact of moving to a single awarding body per qualification;
Maths and English - how might provision be best included, in light of the Government’s consultation on functional skills qualifications and proposals for a transition year for pupils who do not meet minimum grades at GCSE;
Recognition and quality - what more can be done to ensure that technical education delivers parity of esteem with A-levels
Sustainability - following the publication of the final two waves of the Area Reviews of Post-16 education - what more might be needed to underpin the success of the technical education reforms; and
Next steps for policy - as the UK leaves the EU, what further steps might be taken to develop the technical education system required to meet employers’ needs - particularly for those sectors identified in the Industrial Strategy.
