Levelling up with Ascentis
As the United Kingdom looks to continue its recovery from the impact of COVID-19, education is once again at the forefront of Government policy. This year, the Government published their ‘Levelling Up White Paper’. The aim of this policy paper is to ‘end the geographical inequality which is such a striking feature of the UK through improving economic dynamism and innovation to drive growth across the whole country, unleashing the power of the private sector to unlock jobs and opportunity for all’.
Whilst education does not have to come directly from school, college or university, there is no overlooking the importance these avenues have on communities. The UK school system is necessary in order to enhance social welfare and economic growth; improve social mobility; increase employment opportunities; progress personal growth; for innovation to flourish.
Building the foundations
Just as the Government’s ‘Review of post-16 qualifications at Level 2 and below in England’ will testify, English & Maths qualifications provide another route for learners who cannot access GCSEs or Functional Skills. It is no coincidence that of the 22,000 learners enrolled on this qualification in 2019/20, 72% of these learners are over 19 years old and 34% of those have SEND needs. These qualifications give another chance for those looking to grow their future prospects and level-up.
At Ascentis we have a wide range of English & Maths qualifications that can be used across Colleges, Adult Education Centres, Training Providers and Specialist Schools. To suit the needs of any learner looking to improve their job and career opportunities.
