  6. 6. Why have the changes been made? • Jobs for those who have no qualifications are decreasing rapidly • Education will now help young people prepare for the real world • To help make the curriculum for 14-19 year olds less complex and a lot less daunting. • The range of career paths will increase due to the learning of functional skills • To allow students to follow their own personal development path
  7. 7. Implications of teaching • Teachers will have a lot more training • There will be many new training methods introduced • More pupils willing to learn • Increase the teachers work load
  8. 8. Implications of learning • Opportunities for less academic students to gain qualifications • Personal learning schedules developed between the teacher and the student • Learning is less daunting due to the foundation learning level • Changes to A-levels will stretch and challenge young people which will encourage them to learn
  9. 9. Implications of learning continued... • Due to the current state of the economy it may appear that there are less jobs and apprenticeships available • Changes such as the new diploma will present a wider range of career paths to young people
  10. 10. Conclusions There have been many changes made to the 14-19 curriculum and throughout the presentation it has become apparent that all of these changes have been made for the good of the student, education and the economy. Students will be able to learn more due to their personal development plans, they will learn functional skills which will, in turn help them in the real world and due to this, employment chances after full time education will rapidly increase.
