Government response – Review of post-16 qualifications at level 3

Posted in News

The government response to the second stage consultation for the review of post-16 qualifications at level 3 has been published at https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/review-of-post-16-qualifications-at-level-3-second-stage

The aims of the reforms set out in the response are:

·        to ensure that all qualifications offered at post-16 are high quality and help all students progress to their next stage – be that higher education or employment, and

·        to make the offer more streamlined and give students clearer choices.

This consultation response focuses on qualifications at level 3, following a call for evidence earlier in the year, we plan to publish a separate consultation for qualifications at Level 2 and below in the autumn.
