At the Midland Academies Trust, we have a statutory commitment to uphold the Education Act 1997 and the recent Technical and Further Education Act 2017, which involves adhering to the Baker Clause that came into force on 2nd January 2018 (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/technical-education-and-apprenticeships-raising-awareness)
The policy statement from each or our schools within MAT explains how providers of technical education, such as alternative 14-16 providers, Further Education colleges and apprenticeship providers can apply for access to speak with our pupils in Years 8-11 about the various education and training options available to them at 14-16 and post-16, including details of suitable access points within our school calendar and the lead contact at the school who can help to facilitate this.
