The government has moved a step closer to removing qualifications competing with T Levels by 2023 by withdrawing funding for applied general
qualifications, such as BTECs by autumn 2023.
Last Friday The Department for Education (DfE) launched the second stage of its consultation on the future of vocational and technical qualifications at level 3 and below, which will run for 12 weeks.
They claim there is currently a “confusing landscape” of over 12,000 courses
on offer to young people at level 3 and below, with multiple qualifications in the same subject areas available – many of which are “poor quality and offer little value to students or employers”.
