Our Managing Director Dave Radley has been given a unique opportunity to visit parliament today and join a parliamentary debate on T-Level reforms. MPs will be asking whether it’s right to push ahead for a launch date of September 2020.
The event is hosted by former Skills Minister, Robert Halfon MP, and supported by FE Week and Pearson.
The T levels situation will have a big impact on the future of secondary school education in Britain and it’s something that training providers like us are keeping a close eye on.
Courses in construction, digital and education and childcare will be among the first subjects to be taught from September 2020. A further 22 courses will be introduced in 2021, covering sectors such as finance and accounting, engineering and manufacturing, and creative and design.
Today’s debate will cover key aspects of the T-level policy plans, including the approaching tender for single licencing for Awarding Organisations, employer-led content creation, teacher training, awareness raising, the role of the Institute for Apprenticeships and the roll-out of mandatory industry placements.
We’ve asked Dave to Whatsapp the office a few photos of today’s events although we’re not entirely sure they’ll let him get his camera out in parliament.
