Extending TVEI. Bulletin 1.
Further Education Unit, London (England).
The design and implementation of Great Britain's Technical and Vocational Education Initiative (TVEI) provides an opportunity to synthesize planning within a curriculum framework that is common to all learners aged 14-18. It can provide a focus for strategic planning in which learners come first. The process of designing curriculum entitlement starts with the local education authority curriculum policy statement within which 14-18 continuity and coherence are ensured and adequate resources are provided. This policy statement states a common curriculum framework for all 14-18 learning programs described in terms of aims, principles, procedures, and processes. Curriculum entitlement requires the provision of an appropriate core, outcomes, progression, and experience that will offer learners access, quality, and equity. (An illustration of a post-16 TVEI curriculum submitted as part of a TVEI contract is provided. A statement of aims and main elements of the program are included.) (YLB)
