star this property answer text <p>The University Technical Colleges (UTC) programme has an important role to play in our reforms to technical education, with strong UTCs succeeding in equipping young people with the skills businesses need, getting them into employment and supporting social mobility.</p><p>There are regulations in place that require local authorities to write to parents of pupils in Year 9 to notify them of schools with atypical ages of admission within reasonable travelling distance, which includes UTCs, to make sure they are aware of the choices available to them. Early indications suggest that these letters have had a positive impact on awareness of UTCs and supported their recruitment.</p><p> </p><p>Recent changes to the Careers Guidance legislation also requires maintained schools and academies to provide opportunities for providers of technical education, such as UTCs, to visit schools to talk to students in Years 8-13, to inform them of their offer.</p><p> </p><p>UTCs are sponsored by employers and they are essential to marketing efforts by UTCs to promote their offer. Employers can demonstrate to pupils how attending the UTC can lead to a successful career. Employers taking a sustained and embedded role in supporting the UTC programme is crucial to their success.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The government is transforming technical education to create a high quality system that meets the skills needs of businesses and is held in the same high esteem as our academic option. 15 prestigious technical routes will set a clear path to skilled employment through reformed apprenticeships and the new flagship T Level programmes. T Levels are a central part of the greatest shake-up of technical education for 70 years and builds on the recommendations made by the Independent Panel on Technical Education, chaired by Lord Sainsbury. They will provide a distinctive and rigorous technical alternative to A levels.</p><p>They are, however, just one strand of our ambitious new technical education offer. We also intend to undertake a review of qualifications at Level 3 and below so that those we fund serve a genuine and useful purpose, are of high quality and enable students to progress to meaningful outcomes.</p><p> </p> more like this

The introduction of the RoATP, which currently has over 2,600 providers listed, has made it easier for new providers, including small providers, to enter the apprenticeship training market. Ahead of the opening of the RoATP, the Education and Skills Funding Agency raised awareness of the requirement to register and the application process. This included providing webinars, direct engagement and information through representative bodies.
