The updated provider access legislation (PAL) specifies schools must provide at least six encounters for all their students:
Two encounters for pupils during the ‘first key phase’ (year 8 or 9) that are mandatory for all pupils to attend
Two encounters for pupils during the ‘second key phase’ (year 10 or 11) that are mandatory for all pupils to attend
Two encounters for pupils during the ‘third key phase’ (year 12 or 13) that are mandatory for the school to put on but optional for pupils to attend
The new legislation will become a key mechanism to further help learners understand and take-up, not just apprenticeships, but wider technical education options such as T-Levels and Higher Technical Qualifications.
Cornwall’s Festival of Tech is a two-week-long celebration of all things tech, digital and software in Cornwall.
We are inviting students (age 13- 19) and their teachers to get involved and showcase their skills as well as supporting our local NHS across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly
