Abstract

This resource looks at the developments of the 14-19 curriculum in England and how they impact on the work of ICT teachers and teacher trainers. It considers the underlying aims of the government led changes and the subsequent implications.

The reforms see a breakdown of the traditional break at the age of 16 between school and school/college/training/employment/unemployment future for pupils. There is a change in the location of learning from age 14 years with many pupils spending regular or block placements of time out-of-school. There is a change in the staffing with college and work-based staff working alongside teachers in the classroom. There are implications for the curriculum with courses and qualifications being awarded for learning that spans the whole age range.
