Nearly 60% of the country’s working age population still do not have a Level 4+ qualification. It is also not a stark choice for young people to choose between technical or academic education, as they can and should choose the right track for them.</p><p>The Skills Plan, in responding to the Sainsbury recommendations, makes clear that technical education must always be about developing the skills, knowledge and behaviours required for a specific occupation. This Government is focused on strengthening the education system to enable everybody to achieve their potential and to ensure that once and for all, we address the gap in skills at technical and higher technical levels that affects the nation’s productivity.</p> more like this
