TechBacc support (letter in City A.M., 25/4/13)

[Re: Firms cheer UK qualification for industry skills, Tuesday]

It was good to read the endorsement of the new TechBacc by Neil Carberry of the Confederation of British Industry in Tuesday’s paper. Including Level Three in maths, a vocational qualification, plus an extended project, it promises to be rigorous and challenging, giving vocational education the high status it deserves. It is for sixth formers and on a par with the A level route. I am convinced that the TechBacc will allow us to compete internationally, and provide our young people with the skills for which our employers are crying out.
