In response, the Education Secretary, Damian Hinds, wrote that “TLevels are central to reforming technical and vocational education and training, to improve workforce skills and drive productivity growth”. It was important, he said, to “keep up momentum” behind the reforms and none of the advice had indicated that teaching from 2020 cannot be achieved. The Minister added that “the delivery of TLevels in 2020 is focused in a measured way on a small number of TLevels in a small number of providers. I want us now to put all out collective weight behind delivering these TLevels to begin in 2020.”
The Government’s response to the T Level consultation did, however, note the concerns of some respondents, including the CBI, about the pace of roll- out, and stated that the Government had “therefore decided to extend the full roll-out of TLevels beyond 2022. It added that the Government wanted to take “an agile approach” which in some cases could mean slowing plans to get a T Level into delivery, and in other cases accelerating delivery. The final sequencing of the roll-out of TLevels would, the response said, be outlined once the outline content is finalised by T Level panels. 97
The technical option will be delivered by a combination of college-based education and apprenticeships, with four of the 15 routes delivered primarily through apprenticeships. New level 3 study programmes – TLevels – will be created to sit at the start of technical routes (apart from the four apprenticeship only routes), with a T Level for each pathway (i.e. some routes will have more than one T Level). They will be primarily aimed at 16 year olds. The Government intends to develop a ‘transition year’ for those students who are not ready to start a T Level at age 16, but who could achieve one by age 19.
The Skills Plan noted that many students with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) “could achieve a high level of technical skill with the right support.” It stated that the Government would ensure that the technical routes are “accessible, inclusive and sufficiently flexible to be adapted to individual needs” and that learners with SEND should receive the support and reasonable adjustments they need to access a route. It added that the transition year would be “crucial” for the “significant proportion” of students with SEND who are unlikely to be able to access routes because of poor prior attainment. 55
We will establish new institutes of technology, backed by leading employers and linked to leading universities, in every major city in England. They will provide courses at degree level and above, specialising in technical disciplines, such as STEM, whilst also providing higher-level apprenticeships and bespoke courses for employers. They will enjoy the freedoms that make our universities great, including eligibility for public funding for productivity and skills research, and access to loans and grants for their students. They will be able to gain royal charter status and regius professorships in technicaleducation. Above all, they will become anchor institutions for local, regional and national industry, providing sought-after skills to support the economy, and developing their own local identity to make sure they can meet the skills needs of local employers. 74
However, if we truly want a world class system our colleges will need the additional funding to provide world class resources. The plan’s provision for everyone to have work experience alone would cost hundreds of millions of pounds and require much input from employers nationwide to be a success. We therefore welcome the Government's acceptance of the need to review the level of funding for college-based technicaleducation and the Sainsbury Panel's specific suggestion that the intended work placements should receive additional funding. 52
The role of apex bodies as the key players in the enhancement of quality of higher education cannot be ignored. In the era of globalization, privatization, and internationalization of higher education quality improvement and quality assurance assumes special significance These bodies are responsible for funding .coordinating, determining and maintaining standards in institutions of higher education. Some of these bodies are the University Grants Commission(UGC),All India Council of TechnicalEducation (AICTE),Distance Education Council(DEC),National Council for Teacher Education(NCTE),Medical Council of India(MCI),Pharmacy Council of India (PCI),and The Bar Council of India(BCI).The government of India has taken major policy initiatives in the recent years for quality higher education. One such initiative includes the establishment of the National Commission for Higher Education and Research (NCHER).The NCHER Bill (2010) has been drafted to solve the problems in higher education. Independent national bodies like the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) has been established to review the quality of higher education .However it is disturbing to note that the criteria’s that are included for assessment

Hil Mosi you are lucky! "(Demokratia, 1930, pp. 3-4). An important role in terms of nationalism and secularism played and also one education magazine "New Education". This magazine had on its staff patriots and professional teachers. In December 1931 an article in this magazine among others stated that, "We hope that the parliament's, has left the hatch for an intervention of the state to religious authority in the right education, the right of the state entirely. Cannot be tolerated in any way, that the formation of conscience, a free citizen left in the hands of irresponsible. Religious authority should understand that religion and state are completely separate things. "(New Education, 1931, p. 339). With the constant interventions and teacher measures of the Ministry of Education in the year "1931 was reached that the teaching of religion was off school premises or at least outside official school hours." (Gogaj,I Reactionary attitude of the clergy in education, 1972, p. 128).
4.Restricted access to education by women in this country is profoundly rooted in history, religion, culture, the psychology of self, law, political institution and social attitudes which interact in several is ways to limit women's access to formal education when compared with their male counterpart, It has been observed that Indian women are lagging behind their counterparts in developed and some developing nations due to time late start in educating them. This is caused by our traditions and culture which are hostile to women. This tradition reduces them to kitchen manageresses and producers of babies. Thus their education on ideally, is expected to end in kitchen a condition it which ironically is detested by many parents thereby discouraging their investment in girl-child education.
In addition to using all the information available on the Internet, lawyers, both practitioners and academics, use information technology almost every minute of their working day: e-mail for communication, word processors for writing, databases for extracting information and obtaining legal advice and t . Nevertheless, in our republic IT is not used by lawyers as widely as we would like, often in practice the bases of legislations and regulations are used only to search for relevant documents, rather than for other purposes. But in some areas it is possible to observe progress, they are used on a wider scale, for example in the field of rulemaking, tax legislation and banking. It would also be advisable to pay special attention to the development and implementation of legal expert systems in the field of social benefits, in the agricultural sector, as well as in the educational sector, as the conjuncture of these sectors is very high.
commerce education to equip the graduates with specified attributes, derived from the expectation of various stakeholders. Program curriculum is revised often to accommodate to suit industry expectations. Shah and Sedani (2012) 4 in the article, ”Re-thinking Commerce Education” has tried to suggest that Faculty of Commerce needs to be renamed as Faculty of Business, UGC should encourage and facilitate creation at least three departments under the umbrella of Faculty of business i.e. Department of Accounting, Finance and taxation, Department of Business and Management and Department of Business Economics, with semester system and choice based credit system. Ranjan (2012) 5 has tried to explain that right from the beginning commerce is a practical subject as well as related to real life, so for teaching it effectively students’ participation should be encouraged. For students participation teacher should provide opportunity to students to ask questions, answer questions in a meaningful way, offer challenging and thought provoking ideas, plan interactive activities, show approval for students’ ideas, incorporate student’s ideas into lessons, and ask students whether they have understood the concept before proceeding. It ultimately traced the dialogue method of teaching- learning process.In the book ’Teaching of Commerce’ bySingh (2011) 6 effective commerce education for which we need to have good and effective commerce teachers. According to author one of the main reasons is that in planning the syllabus of teacher education in subject of commerce and teaching practice programme. Commerce Teacher must know the teaching acts and acquire teaching skills and classroom teaching rules with teaching theories. The book gives complete insight into commerce education: Meaning, scope, importance of curriculum, correlation with other subjects, commerce room.
Another discussion that takes place, is about the forms of communication between the Government and the Universities - dialogical vs. bureaucratic. The comparison between the former CNAA and HEQC is quite an interesting one. Both institutions had national responsibilities. However, the CNAA used peer reviews and established a continuous dialogue with the higher education institutions, while the HEQC used bureaucratic mechanisms for assessment and control. However, the critique of bureaucratic forms of state intervention is weakened by the fact that managerialism in higher education improves cost-effectiveness. The problem that is still unresolved is that direct intervention by the state is not able to stimulate quality improvement. One of the main tasks for the new QAA, obviously, will be to find new ways of quality assessment that enhances continuous professional development.
Kuanysh TASTANBEKOVA The education reform process in Kazakhstan can be divided into three stages. The first stage took nearly a decade after independence, when educationreforms led by the rhetoric of international donors represented reductions in public education expenditures. The second stage lasted another ten years that started at the dawn of the new century, and the government passed hasty reforms with the purpose of integrating Kazakhstan’s education into so-called “international educational space”. And finally, reforms over the ongoing decade have been implemented under the slogan of developing Kazakhstan’s original course of educational innovation. It took form of the establishment of an elite university and schools for gifted children which progressive teaching and learning experience (in three languages, Kazakh, Russian and English) is intended to be disseminated to all secondary schools. The success of this ambitious plan fully depends on the existence of highly qualified teachers. That is why former teacher training institutes across the country were reorganized into Centers of Excellence where teachers undergo three step training programs developed by a well-known western university. Significant funds are funneled into these professional development programs. Meanwhile reform of pre-service teacher education has undergone mainly structural transformations and was rarely prioritized by the government. This study analyzes education legislative initiatives and policy papers and indicates recent trends in teacher educationreforms and the issues they cause. Specifically, this paper argues that radical and fast changes that were brought by these reforms cannot guarantee expected results for reasons such as low motivation of teachers, gaps between rural schools and schools for gifted children which practices are used for dissemination through in-service training.

Students must also have a defined pathway in order to participate in the Work-Based component of Career- Related Education. This is especially important for successful application of a student’s pathway because each job placement is directly related to the curriculum of the classes completed or in which the student is currently enrolled. Work-Based Learning is not simply work release, but an extension of the high school classroom learning in a non-traditional laboratory setting. It is an opportunity to truly apply, in real world settings, what the student has learned through a related program of study.
The purpose of this study was to provide educational leaders and stakeholders with significant, clear and compelling evidence to support the remodeling of the current CTE curriculum in Southeast Public School District to increase the accessibility of CTE programs to maximize its potential to benefit and meet the needs of all students along with meeting the future demands of Florida's future economy. The Southeast District’s failure to expand course selections, as well as provide additional sites to enable students to pursue a career and college-ready curriculum, are too often poor to simply non- existent. To continue such practices is to block the maximum potential benefits to students and the forecasted future demands of Florida's economy. Career and TechnicalEducation has the potential to engage students through relevant learning experiences and, when infused with rigorous academic standards, to thoroughly prepare students for college and career success (Career and TechnicalEducation, 2016). Yet, in Southeast Public School District, where an ineffective curriculum is being utilized, career and technicaleducation is yet to achieve its full potential for students. Whether the right partnerships have yet to be formed, updated instructional approaches have yet to be implemented, or data systems have yet to be aligned, many students do not have access to the most effective career and technicaleducation programs. This study aimed to identify and validate an appropriate solution strategy for the out-of-date curriculum that is being offered by the Southeast Public School District. With the development of a new
The data collection process began by contacting superintendents. Superintendents received an email from the commissioner of education inviting them to participate in the CTE Program Inventory. Superintendents were contacted up to four times by email and phone, with the invitation to designate someone within their district to act as a primary contact for the CTE Program Inventory data collection process. These primary contacts included principals, administrative, clerical, school support or finance staff, CTE teachers, Perkins consortium leaders, and more; although district site teams were often involved with the data collection process, the point of communication with MDE and the collection process occurred via the primary contact as designated by each superintendent.
