The OfS responds to the Secretary of State for Education’s announcement of a review of Level 4 and 5 qualifications.
Responding to the Secretary of State for Education’s announcement of a review of Level 4 and 5 qualifications, Chris Millward, Director for Fair Access and Participation at the Office for Students, said:
‘We have been pleased to work with the government on these proposals from an early stage, sharing evidence and insights on the motivations, experience and outcomes of students in a less heralded part of higher education.
There is a pressing need to develop more diverse routes through post-18 education. This is important to improve choice for students - particularly those who want to study in their local area or alongside work, who are often the most disadvantaged. These qualifications may also prove a key piece in the jigsaw for local and national prosperity, given many employers’ urgent need for higher-level technical skills.’
