England’s post-16 qualifications to be streamlined
Hinds said A-levels, which recently underwent substantial changes, and T-levels, which are due to be rolled out from 2020, were the “gold standard choice” for young people after GCSEs. “But we also want to make sure that all options available to students are high-quality and give them the skills they need to get a great job, go on to further education or training, and employers can be confident they can access the workforce they need for the future,” he said. “We can’t legislate for parity of esteem between academic and technical routes post-16. But we can improve the quality of the options out there and by raising quality, more students and parents will trust these routes.”
