AELP response to the Review of Post-16 Qualifications at Level 2 and below
6. Do you agree that we should fund qualifications that support progression to level 3 technical provision
Do you agree that qualifications in this group should be small to medium-sized, with a guideline size of 120-240 GLH?
AELP believes that the government should continue to fund qualifications that support progression to level 3 technical qualifications. Progression to level 3 is important. However, many sectors- such as construction- have a high number of occupations that only need level 2 competency. Progression into sustainable employment should be valued as highly- and it should be up to the learner whether they wish to progress on to level 3 or not.
