Ahead of today’s Skills Summit, hosted by the Department for Education, David Hughes, Chief Executive of the Association of Colleges, said: “Today’s event is a great way of bringing together Government, employers and colleges to help promote the Government’s ambitious and important reforms to vocational and technical education.
“Colleges are the natural place for T levels to be delivered because they understand technical and professional education, deliver to hundreds of thousands of people now and have wide and strong relationships with employers. They are ready to deliver the high-quality teaching, facilities and links to jobs which students studying T Levels deserve.
“The forthcoming consultation on T Levels is an important step forward in helping to develop a technical and professional education system in England that matches the best in the world as our country becomes more self-sufficient in skills, giving more young people the transition into working lives that they deserve. The AoC is strongly committed to working with employers and Government to ensure this is a success.”
