The Government are moving ahead with their planned reforms as part of a shakeup of the post-16 system to remove low-quality qualifications that lack job prospects.  

The new system will create two clearly defined paths for people who have completed GCSEs or similar courses: academic, meaning qualifications that primarily lead to further study, and technical, those qualifications that primarily lead to skilled employment. This will mean everyone can see more easily how their studies support their future training or job aspirations.

Apprenticeships (Job ready qualifications), A levels and new T Levels (preparation for work qualification) will become the main progression options after GCSEs.
