The latest consultation on the proposed approach to regulating the technical qualifications within T Levels has been launched.
Ofqual’s detailed, 71-page consultation sets out the latest thinking on the rules and regulations for T Level qualifications.
Given the short, 4 week turn-around time for responses – deliberately set to keep in line with the government’s timescales for first teaching of the first 3 T Level programmes from September 2020 – Ofqual is particularly encouraging responses on how assessments should be set and marked, retakes and results/certification requirements.
Following this policy consultation, Ofqual will analyse responses in collaboration with the Institute for Apprenticeships and consult on the wording of the rules to be applied to Technical Qualifications. A further 8 week technical consultation will follow in early September.
