Following a successful AoC Conference, we want to update you on the reform of our Level 3 Cambridge Technicals and give you the reassurance that we have the right qualifications to support your students’ lifelong learning journey.
Launching for first teaching September 2016, our new Cambridge Technicals will allow your students to achieve their potential and progress to the next stage of their lives, whether it be Higher Education, an apprenticeship, or employment. Cambridge Technicals in Engineering will also be available for first teaching September 2015.
The redevelopment of the suite allows us to refresh the content, making sure it’s up to date, engaging, fit for purpose and suitable for the needs of your students in 2016 and beyond.
We’ve made a decision to position the Cambridge Technicals across the ‘Applied General’ and ‘Tech Award’ categories outlined in the DfE’s technical guidance. Each category has characteristics defined by the DfE in order for the qualification to be recognised in the new Key Stage 5 accountability measures.
Kay Turner and learner Jake Dearlove talk about their experiences.
