Immediately following the AELP National Conference, Professor (Baroness) Alison Wolf of Kings College London published a report called ‘Heading for the Precipice’ on the future of the FE and skills sector in the face of the major funding challenges
This AELP Update June 2015 report sets out some of the recent activities that AELP has been involved in and highlights a number of successes against a backdrop of new challenges in the sector, budget restraints, and the demands for even higher quality benchmarks. However, none of that would have been possible without the continuing support and commitment from our members.
The government has announced that apprenticeships are to be given ‘equal legal treatment’ as degrees, the enshrinement in law that 3 million apprenticeships will be created by 2020 and public sector bodies will be set apprenticeship recruitment targets.
