  4. 4. All areas must deliver some Foundation learning for 14-19 year olds in 2010. <br />Local authorities must present plans for foundation learning by 2009/10 to 2010/11<br />It is aimed at level 1 students<br />It is helping bridge the gap towards raising of the participation age in 2013<br />It is designed to help progression of students towards level 2 education<br />Personalised learning programmes<br />Qualifications awarded by units to offer students an award for their efforts. <br />Foundation Learning <br />

  7. 7. What are PTLS?<br />Personal learning and thinking skills framework is set out into six groups together they cover the areas of competence that are most demanded by employers. <br />independent enquirers<br />creative thinkers<br />reflective learners<br />team workers<br />self-managers<br />effective participants<br />They apply to all people aged 11-19<br />

  11. 11. Apprenticeship <br />In 2008 the National Apprenticeship service was launched you may remember seeing Sir Alan Sugar in an advertising campaign, but the real truth is apprenticeships are becoming a more appealing option than standard education routes, why?<br />The DCSF expects one in five young people to take up apprenticeships over the next decade<br />The aim by 2013 is to have apprenticeship entitlement for all suitably qualified young people<br />The DCSF are encouraging small businesses to take part in offering apprenticeships with a pilot wage subsidy programme<br />
  12. 12. Apprenticeship <br />They are also providing 35,000 apprenticeship places in 2009/2010<br /> The minimum salary is £95 a week<br />In 2009/10 there are 164 young people from Nottingham city and Nottinghamshire on a Young Apprenticeship programme<br />
  13. 13. Conclusion<br />I have spoken to three different teachers who all agree changes in the curriculum are vital.<br />It should improve attendance of students<br />Offer employer recognized qualifications that will suit the needs of both the employers and the learners<br />Improve the flexibility of how the courses are taught<br />Assessments replacing coursework <br />New courses bridging the gaps in education<br />Establish strong routes into further and higher education<br />Will anybody know the true success until full implementation and results are evaluated?<br />
