On 11 August 2016, members of the FAB Board met with representatives of Department for Education (DfE). The meeting was requested by FAB to explore the DfE’s plans for the implementation of the Post-16 Skills Plan which was published on 8 July 2016 alongside the Report of the Independent Panel on Technical Education (the Sainsbury Review). An informal note of the meeting can be found here: FAB Board/DfE Meeting re Post-16 Skills Plan.
Following the meeting, the FAB Board agreed that it would be useful to expand our draft response to the Post-16 Skills Plan (circulated to members in the Update on 12 August). We have now added a third column to this document to outline how we believe implementation should be approached: FAB Response to the Post-16 Skills Plan. Members are invited to comment on this and any feedback can be sent to email@example.com.
