The prime minister announced during his Conservative party conference speech that he would be creating a “new single qualification for school leavers” by replacing A-levels and T Levels with the Advanced British Standard. The reform comes only three years after T Levels were launched with over £1 billion investment and during “T Levels Week” – created and led by the Department for Education to applaud the “gold-standard” qualifications. Under the plan, A-levels and T Levels would be merged into the new Advanced British Standard, which would see 16 to 19-year-olds “typically” study five subjects including “some form” of English and maths. The government has said it will launch a consultation next month, with a proposed white paper next year. Click here for more.
