According to a recent article by The Telegraph, the UK is planning to announce on Wednesday the biggest overhaul in secondary education in the past 70 years with the aim of improving technical training.
These new technical training courses, or ‘T-levels’ are expected to be the technical version of ‘A-levels’ and will be funded by a £500 million per year budget.
The ‘T-levels’ will offer 15 different courses including manufacturing, business and administration, catering, hospitality, construction and social care and students will be expected to spend 50% longer in learning (900 hours of teaching) than current technical courses on offer at present.
It is expected that the 15 ‘T-level’ courses will be unveiled from 2019 – 2020.
