Level 3 Qualification "De-Funding" Appeal Process and Issues

Chaired by NFEC Chair: Dr Jon Gill

Led by Sian Owen of Pearson and Dean O'Donoghue from OCR

For some time now we have all been concerned about the future limitation of options for level 3 qualifications, particularly in all areas of Engineering and Technology, frequent references have been made and discussed during seminars and meetings and there have been many articles and discussion papers online and in various journals.

The debate, consultations and studies have involved all levels of education, professional bodies and industry for most sectors. Particular impact is on the current and future plans for our qualification awarding bodies who continue to work to ensure suitable progression opportunities and viability of recognised career paths.

NFEC Seminars have discussed T Levels processes and outcomes in some depth - reference has been made to their impact current, well proven, Technical Qualifications (of which there is a long list).

This seminar provided the opportunity to understand just what the current and future position is, primarily what has to be done to meet the defined Appeals Deadline of 7th July and what will happen next. The presentation slides give more information.

We ask members and friends to assist the awarding bodies in this process - particularly Pearson at this vital time.

This is the first of a series of Seminars that will deal with various elements of this subject.
