The much awaited Augar Review of Post-18 Education and Funding was published today.
There was significant and welcome focus on Further Education including on the sector’s workforce. This included the need for clearer and increased teacher recruitment pipelines alongside references to qualifications, progression routes and professional status. In addition, there was recognition of the need for the sector’s workforce to be T Level ready.
We are pleased with this focus as it raises a number of vitally important issues about the sector’s workforce who are essential to the success of our learners, employers and providers as well as to social mobility and our society. We will review the report’s findings and consider how the Education and Training Foundation and the Society for Education and Training can help in taking any of the relevant recommendations forward.
