Government Consultation on Post-16 Qualifications

The Government has today opened the consultation on the review of post-16 qualifications at level 3 and below in England. This can be found on gov.uk here: www.gov.uk/government/consultations/review-of-post-16-qualifications-at-level-3-and-below-in-england.

We have also published two accompanying ad hoc statistical releases which can be found online here:

This review, alongside the development of T Levels, is central to building a world class technical education system. The review is an opportunity to develop a qualifications system where every student benefits from high quality qualifications that help them realise their talents and achieve their career ambitions. This is vital to addressing our country’s productivity and skills gaps and achieving the international competitiveness on which our future prosperity depends.

We would welcome a response from your organisation, and ask that you kindly circulate the link to the consultation to your members.

The consultation is open for 12 weeks and will close on 10 June 2019.

If you have any queries, please direct them to Post16Level3andBelowReview.CONSULTATION@education.gov.uk and we will respond to you in due course.
