The Foundation Learning Tier (FLT) is a welcome initiative that aims to support the millions of people with few or no qualifications below level 2 (one GCSE A* to C--a full level 2 is equivalent to five GCSEs A* to C). It is an ambitious project with far reaching implications. It is work in hand and, as such, its central principles are being refined, however the practicalities of its implementation are becoming clearer, with the "Prospectus for Progression Pathways" offering much needed information, advice and guidance. This article describes the genesis of the FLT, what it "looks like", its strengths, and what issues exist that need addressing if the FLT is to realise its potential.
