This policy review looks across Levels 4 and 5 in education, focusing on how technical qualifications can better address the needs of learners and employers. It will enable the Government to produce a clear programme for T-Level students and set out their progression into higher education.

Following the review, the Government will implement its commitments set out within the Skills Plan.

We will continue consulting with employers, providers and other experts to ensure learners develop the knowledge they need for skilled employment or for further technical study.
