Help ensure a skilled workforce for the future

In July 2016, the Government set out its vision in the Post 16 Skills Plan 2016, which accepted all the recommendations made by the Independent Panel on Technical Education on how to improve technical education in England. This includes organising technical education, work-based (apprenticeships) and college-based, into 15 “routes” to skilled employment, such as engineering & manufacturing, digital and construction.

Each technical education route needs panels of professionals to develop standards that would apply to work-based or college-based specific occupations and provide high level steers on qualification content.   They are now ready to form the panels that will develop these occupational standards.  This is an exciting moment & opportunity, and they are looking for experienced professionals in the occupations relevant to the “routes”, who are willing to provide their expertise and commit their time.
