Government responds to Wolf Report on vocational education

May 27, 2011

The Department for Education published its response to the Wolf Report on vocational education on 13 May. Follow the link below to download the response, which proposes to take actions on three key themes, which in brief are:

  • ensuring all young people study English and maths, and ideally achieve to GCSE A*-C, by the age of 19. GCSEs will be reformed.
  • reforming performance tables and funding rules which devalue vocational education.
  • looking at the experience of other countries to simplify Apprenticeships, remove bureaucracy and make the easier for employers to offer.

There’s much more – 22 pages altogether – in which the government accepts all the recommendations in the Wolf report (see blog article on 3rd March or follow the links from the DfE website).
