This seminar brought together national policy makers with stakeholders to consider the steps that can be taken by educators and policymakers to improve the current offering for technical education at level 4 and 5, as we move into a new age of technical learning.
This included an updated on the level 4-5 review by the Department for Education.
The seminar provided an opportunity to assess progress and current trends in higher technical education, as well as expectations for the implementation of Institutes of Technology and T-levels, which will replace the current offering at level 3. Discussion included viewpoints from candidates of the IoT competition, as well as international perspectives, with the focus being a on the need for a clear technical pathway that achieves parity of esteem with academic options.
Further sessions considered the existing regulatory framework and explored how the various bodies will fit into the evolving technical education landscape, including the expansion of the role of the IfA, and the newly formed OfS. Included in this was the role of qualifications, and awarding bodies, and how these will continue to be moderated by Ofqual.
Later discussion surrounded channels of information, and the importance of students being provided with the right information, at the right time, to ensure they are aware of all available options.
