Summary

This consultation ran from July to September 2019. Higher technical education is post-18 education aligned to technical routes, such as accounting, engineering, management or laboratory science. The DfE sought to attain views on its plans to:

  • create a new system to make it clearer which higher technical qualifications provide the skills employers want,
  • work with the Office for Students (the independent higher education regulator) to recognise and develop high-quality provision of higher technical education,
  • make higher technical education a more positive and popular choice by raising awareness and understanding of it among potential students and employers.
