Shaping the future with funding

The plan for T levels is to shape the future of education and our economy, the government has stated that their hope for T Levels is that they will be world-class, much like their ‘traditional’ counterparts, A Levels.

In order to achieve this likeness and produce world-class qualifications, the government released a funding consultation at the end of 2018, announcing their plans for a funding system which will hopefully ensure the success of T Levels.

The consultation states that funding for the delivery of T Levels will include ‘an extra £500 million a year to meet the costs of additional teaching hours and industry placement requirements’.  Other notable points of the consultation include 18 year olds being funded at the same level as 16 and 17 year olds on a T Level and the mandatory industry placement will be funded at £550 funding over the 2 years of the programme, or £275 per year.

The consultation closes at 11.45pm on 19 February 2019 and can be accessed here

When it comes to self-care, research and data implies the most important element is sleep. If we are to be productive in whatever our life demands and be able to face the challenges we are confronted with, then sleep is the cornerstone of being able to do this and stay well.

There are a whole host of reasons why you might encounter challenging students, and often, the reasons behind their behaviour aren’t entirely clear. Even when you can identify a cause, that on the surface appears to be more obvious, such as recent bereavement, displacement or physical illness, it doesn’t necessarily make challenging behaviour easier to tackle.

In the workplace, poor mental health can often be a consequence of work-related stress. The effective management of stress has been high on the agenda in schools for over a decade and stress has been identified as the most common health and safety problem in the UK.

Following nested suite programmes, like those from NCFE, can help with success, retention and achievement data by supporting learners at risk with appropriate drop off points in the year, and providing progression options for those who are excelling.
