In a relatively quiet week for education policy as activity winds down for recess, the Petitions Committee held a debate on BTEC qualifications after the Protect Student Choice campaign’s petition received more than 108,000 signatures. The debate featured arguments in favour of BTECs and applied general qualifications from MPs across the political spectrum. It will be interesting to see whether the new Prime Minister and their team of ministers will consider the weight of public and political support for choice at age 16.
