Planning ahead for the post-16 reforms  

The recent post-16 education reforms in England affect Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications in engineering and manufacturing and building services engineering (BSE) – the main changes being the defunding of technical qualifications for 16 to 19-year-olds that overlap with T Levels and Level 2 qualifications for 16 to 19-year-olds that do not meet the Skills and Post-16 Education Act of 2022. 

We understand these changes may be a cause of concern – we’re here to clarify the reforms and help you plan for the coming years.
