Minimum Standards for Post-16

The DfE have now published minimum standards for the Post-16 sector.  The standards will, for the first time, bring a consistency to measuring the performance of school sixth forms, FE colleges, UTCs, 16-19 Academies, and sixth form colleges.  Vocational and academic qualifications will form the basis of the measurement and will mean that comparisons can take place across the sector.

We'll be discussing this and other topics at our annual summit in London on 15 February 2013.  If you'd like more information on the summit email us
