Technical and Further Education Bill

14 December 2017

The Government has launched a Technical and Further Education Bill. Commenting on the announcement, David Hughes, Chief Executive of the Association of Colleges (AoC), said: “We are pleased that the Government is continuing to take forward the measures outlined in the Post-16 Skills Plan with the Technical and Further Education Bill. “The move to incorporate technical and professional education in the remit of the Institute for Apprenticeships reinforces the need for coherence between the workplace and colleges. “This will help to ensure that young people are able to obtain clear guidance on career progression and benefit adults who want to train in their current job or retrain to progress their career. “We will continue to work with the Government and the new Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education to develop the new post-16 structure for technical and professional education.”
