Review of post-16 qualifications at level 3 and below in England

Closed 10 Jun 2019

Opened 19 Mar 2019

Overview

We are seeking views on the principles that should guide our review of post-16 qualifications at level 3 and below.

Why We Are Consulting

This consultation is the first stage of the Government’s review of post-16 level 3 and below qualifications (excluding T Levels, A Levels and GCSEs). It asks for views on the high level principles and outlines proposals for the removal of funding approval for unreformed qualifications. The consultation will run for 12 weeks.

The response to this consultation and second stage of the review will follow later in 2019.
