Higher technical education consultation

Closed 29 Sep 2019

Opened 8 Jul 2019

Overview

We are seeking views on our proposed reforms to higher technical education in England.

Why We Are Consulting

The proposals in this consultation cover higher technical education in England. Specifically, the consultation sets out our proposed approach to creating a system of employer-led national standards and invites views on the principles and processes underpinning this.

It also sets out our approach to ensuring high quality provision of higher technical education and the steps we propose to take to stimulate demand for higher technical qualifications. It invites views on these.
