Transforming Education and Training Provision in Wales
The Transformation policy requires all learning providers to support the policy by planning and implementing change to secure significant improvements to learning delivery.
The policy and framework for post-16 reconfiguration, Transforming Education and Training Provision in Wales, was launched in September 2008.
The policy challenges all schools, colleges, universities and work-based training providers to set aside traditional, narrow, institutional arrangements and plan provision collectively across a geographic area. In this way they would be able to directly remove duplicate learning programmes and direct more funding to teaching and learning and learner support. This would provide more and better learning opportunities for all young people and adults.
In Wales, the evidence shows that no one specific collaboration or reconfiguration model could deliver the transformation of post-16 education and training provision. Consequently, the policy is not prescriptive in its approach to change. It calls upon providers of post-16 education to form partnerships across geographic areas or skill sectors and develop local/regional solutions based on evidence of need.
In November 2009, "Transformation - Y Siwrnai" was published. This document reports back on the progress made on post-16 transformational change one year on from the launch of the Transformation policy and details ‘y siwrnai’/’the journey’ that stakeholders have been taking to implement the post-16 phase of the Transformation policy. It also highlights the intention to extend the Transformation policy to cover all phases of education and training.
DCELLS is continuing to work with Learning Partnerships on the development and implementation of effective plans for change. These fall into four models: Further education/maintained secondary school collaboration; unification of all Post-16 Learning provision in an area; Further Education Institution mergers and Local Authority area re-organisation.
We expect implementation of the policy to result in significant benefits for learners with a firm focus on improved skill levels for all young people and adults.
