It was reported by The Times this morning that new technical A levels, named T-levels, will be introduced to give a skills boost in post-Brexit Britain.
The qualifications will be taught from 2020 and the government has hailed the T-levels as amilestone in transforming technical education. Guita Blake, Senior VP & Head of Europe at Mindtree commented below.
Guita Blake, Senior VP & Head of Europe at Mindtree:
“The introduction of these new qualifications are a welcome addition to the UK education system and demonstrate a national commitment to the STEM agenda.
The future of both the technology industry and the wider UK digital economy will largely depend on inspiring the next generation of computer experts to innovate and drive forward technological advancements.
Both the government and teachers alike now need to ensure that students feel encouraged to develop their skills in these areas in order to excel in the digital world and shape the next generation of IT leaders.”
