The department is reforming technical education to ensure that all post-16 students have access to high quality technical options that support progression and meet employer needs. This includes the introduction of T Levels, new technical qualifications designed with employers, reviewing the technical qualifications we continue to fund at level 3 and below, and introducing new Higher Technical qualifications.

We are putting employers at the heart of the skills system and boosting the quality of qualifications on offer by basing them on employer-led occupational standards so that all students leave education with the skills most needed by industry.
