Provider Access Legislation changes

Date Posted: 9th September

A new law is expected to come into force in January 2023 which will change an important area of the work we do together to support young people.

The Skills and Post-16 Education Act 2022 sets out new requirements on the number and types of encounters schools will need to deliver for their pupils with providers of technical education or apprenticeships.

At The Careers & Enterprise Company we know improving pupils’ knowledge of Apprenticeships and Technical Education pathways alongside other learning pathways is key to supporting young people find their best next step. Much good work has been and is being done.

The Provider Access Legislation will become a key mechanism to further help learners understand and take-up, not just apprenticeships, but wider technical education options such as T-Levels and Higher Technical Qualifications. At The Careers & Enterprise Company we are keen to support schools and providers to meet and evidence this updated requirement as part of wider progressive careers programmes.

We, like you, are committed to empowering the best possible choice and opportunity for young people. We know there is already fantastic work being done by schools across the country in connecting young people with technical qualification and apprenticeship pathways. We are determined to build on that good practice.
