This year, Cambridge Assessment is the core sponsor of the Westminster Education Forum and this seminar will focus on the likely challenges around the 16-19 education and training provision, discussions will include the implementation of the recently published Post-16 Skills Plan, support for the 16-19 providers to overcome financial and budgetary constraints, the importance of collaborative partnerships in keeping the costs down and streamlining intervention measures when a college is classes as financially ‘inadequate’.
With the Government’s introduction of the Progress 8, school performance measure plan, delegates will be looking at assessing policy priorities for improving overall qualifications and provision for 16-19 learners and to implement support to schools and colleges to advance forward to meet the performance measure. Ways to encourage and improve employer engagement in post-16-19 education and training will also be explored, along with diversifying routes into higher education and ways forward to improve the quality if vocational education and training.
