HTQs and IoTs have significant potential to boost the take-up of higher technical education, supported by a number of other policy initiatives including the Lifelong Loan Entitlement, the Lifetime Skills Guarantee and Local Skills Improvement Plans.
In this report, kindly supported by the University of Salford, the Lifelong Education Commission is making recommendations which will ensure that all policy initiatives in relation to higher technical education are appropriately developed and supported, in order to make a genuine difference in this field.
