Abstract:

In 2012, the UK government established an independent review panel to consider current arrangements to regulate and facilitate the professionalism of the further education and skills workforce. One of the panel's recommendations was for a review and simplification of the in-service teaching qualifications in the further education and skills sector only. The review is taking place in three phases. Phase one involved a series of initial conversations with employers, sector membership bodies and other stakeholders to inform the scope and focus of the review and develop proposals for new qualifications. Phase two (late 2012) sought views and comments from the sector on the proposed changes. This took place between 15 October and 26 November 2012. This report of phase two presents an analysis of the responses to the 19 proposals under the following areas: (1) a single qualification at each level and of increasing size be developed; (2) the qualifications should be flexible enough to enable a focus on particular learning contexts; (3) separate qualifications that are not 'nested' be developed; and (4) the professional standards be reviewed. The statistical analysis for each proposal is followed by a brief commentary on some of the comments received for that proposal, and details of the action LSIS intends to take, based on the outcomes of this phase of the review, and as agreed with the project steering group.
