Learning To Succeed: A New Framework for Post-16 Learning. Presented to Parliament by the Secretary of State of Education and Employment by Command of Her Majesty.
Department for Education and Employment, London (England).
This white paper outlines a proposed framework for post-16 learning in England. Chapter 1 discusses the principles underpinning the new policy, which are as follows: investing in learning to benefit everyone; lifting barriers to learning; putting people first; sharing responsibility with employers, employees, and the community; achieving world class standards and value for money; and considering the key to success to be working together to drive forward. The rationale for the proposed changes is explained in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 provides details about a proposed Learning and Skills Council to drive forward improvements in standards and to bring greater coherence and responsiveness to all post-16 education and training (excluding higher education) in England. The following are among the topics examined in chapters 4-10: a framework for success beyond age 16; improving quality; education and training of young people; supporting adult learners; encouraging learning businesses; transitional arrangements and a timetable for implementing the proposals; and related issues on which interested parties are invited to comment. Appended are the following: discussion of the proposed policy's implications for Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland; information for monitoring and evaluation; and current inspection and quality assurance arrangements. The bibliography contains 30 references. A glossary is included. (MN)
