Level 2 construction training – join BACH’s campaign for appropriate funding

Level 2 and Post 16 Qualifications

Cutting off the bottom of the training ladder

This week BACH like many others will have put in our response to the Departmental consultation issued through Ofqual entitled “Review of post-16 qualifications at level 2 and below in England”.

It is appreciated that the proposals are thin on detail, and many organisations have been calling for more clarity.  Whilst recognising that this is the case, the true intent is very clear indeed.  Cut funding and saw the bottom off the skills ladder which the Chair of the Education Select Committee, Hon Robert Halfon MP, talks so passionately about.

BACH agrees we need reform which includes rationalisation and simplification of the qualification landscape. We also need to be able to readily update all the qualifications, apprenticeship standards and NOS were there are no standards, for digitization and sustainability ‘green’ skills. In fact, a new and easy way of continually updating qualifications is required as there are going to have to be changes made on an on-going basis.

BACH and its Members also appreciate the problems with funding rates and recruitment none of which are addressed in this consultation.  We will be discussing more on this at our conference on 19 May in Coventry.
