Only a Quarter Of Parents Back Technical Education

A survey carried out by CACHE has found that although parents do see the value of technical education, twice as many parents would advise their children to study for A-Levels (53%) rather than technical qualifications (26%). It also found a low awareness of the technical education reforms. AELP CEO, Mark Dawe commented “This survey appears to confirm that questions over value for money from a traditional degree with its accompanying student debt are increasingly prompting young people and parents to weigh post-16 options very carefully. If introduced in the right way, T levels will enrich the choices available for those who may prefer a different route to a technical qualification that apprenticeships and degrees can already provide.”
