On the 15th March 2022, the All–Party Parliamentary Group for Youth Employment presented their report from an inquiry into The Impact of Vocational Qualifications on Young People’s Employability and Labour Market Outcomes.
The APPG for Youth Employment Report: The Impact of Vocational Qualifications on Young People’s Employability and Labour Market Outcomes – Youth Employment UK follows a 4 month inquiry that seeks to understand the impact of proposed changes to post–16 education policy on future labour market outcomes of young people.
The Department for Education (DfE) proposed the streamlining of post–16 qualifications by removing funding for some vocational, technical, and other vocational technical qualifications (VTQs), such as CTEC and BTEC qualifications by 2024–2025. T Levels, A Levels and apprenticeships are intended to be the main options for students at Key Stage 5.
