Ofqual has reformed the framework of Functional Skills qualifications (FSQs) in English and maths that are offered by a number of different awarding organisations.

At levels 1 and 2 these qualifications are used in apprenticeships and they will also be used in the new T Levels. All levels are taken by a range of adult learners and some 16 to 18-year-olds.

The report from the Children's Commissioner for Wales highlights many issues young people face as they become adults and points out the limited choices and funding available. Transition services, where they exist, vary greatly across Wales and frequently fail because they do not place young people at the centre of the planning process. Being able to make the right choices depends on the availability of the right information and too often this simply doesn't exist.

Report

In August 2012, the Ofsted survey ‘Progression post-16 for learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities’ found that transition arrangements for these learners to post-16 education and into adulthood were not fully effective. Schools, local authorities and other agencies did not work together sufficiently well to ensure that learners were adequately prepared for transition between school and post-16 provision. 

Three years on, this survey sought to evaluate how well further education and skills provision meets the needs and interests of young people aged between 16 and 25 with high levels of need. It also assessed the extent to which the early implementation of the Children and Families Act 2014 has enabled the sector to help these young people to succeed in education and prepare them for adult life.

Ofsted has published a report looking at the early implementation of 16 to 19yrs study programmes. The purpose of the survey was to evaluate how effectively further education and skills providers and schools and academies with sixth forms have implemented the 16 to 19 study programmes introduced in August 2013 and made the best use of the changed funding arrangements for 16–19-year-olds. The fieldwork for this survey was carried out between September 2013 to April 2014.

This Ofsted report presents some of the common factors that have led to high performance in the work of 15 providers who are extensively involved in delivering apprenticeships to young people. It explains how the providers have successfully recruited young people as apprentices: introducing them to the world of work; supporting them in developing vocational skills and completing their apprenticeship frameworks; and supporting their progression into employment and further study. A summary is also available on the Ofsted website.
