Schooling for 14-19 yr olds
The 14-19 Education and Skills Programme is the new programme the Government has launched for 14-19 yr olds, which also includes the introduction of a diploma. It is mentioned in the Service Personnel Command Paper matrix as something that will be monitored and it was an agenda item at the MOD Children’s Board meeting.
The Government want an excellent system of 14-19 education; a system where all young people have opportunities to learn in ways which motivate and engage them and, through hard work, position themselves for success in life.
The Government believe it is important to keep the public updated about the reforms, improvements and plans for 14–19 education and their new website is where you can find out about:
- changes to the curriculum that came into effect from September 2008
- the new Diploma, apprenticeships and the strengthened GCSEs and A levels
- information and support materials about the development of the 14-19 curriculum and 14-19 partnerships
- support, training and events for organisations delivering Diplomas and functional skills
- access to 14-19 area prospectuses.
