Implementation of 14–19 reforms, including the introduction of Diplomas
Date: 17 Aug 2009
This is Ofsted’s second report evaluating the progress made in implementing 14–19 reforms. It follows up some of the key strategic issues of the first report, in 2008, and focuses particularly on the introduction of the new 14–19 Diplomas.
Overall, 14–19 initiatives have continued to widen opportunities and meet the needs of young people. Progress in introducing the Diplomas was promising across the 23 consortia visited, many of which have been at the forefront of 14–19 developments. While the main subject learning of the Diplomas was generally going well, other elements, and particularly functional skills, needed more attention.
