DfE consultation on post-16 qualifications at Level 2 and below


Thousands of qualifications are set to be transformed so that more people can gain the skills employers need and progress into work. The consultation launched on 02 March is seeking views on plans to reform post-16 qualifications at Level 2 and below so everyone has access to high-quality options that will lead to good outcomes whether that is going on to further study or into a job.

Qualifications will be streamlined and strengthened so that young people and adults have a clearer choice of options available to them and can be confident that they will set them on a path to a rewarding career.
