Transforming Education and Training Provision in Wales
The policy requires all learning providers to support the transformation policy by planning and implementing change to secure significant improvements for all learners.
The Assembly Government asked learning providers to take the necessary steps to form geographic and sectoral Learning Partnerships by November 2008, with the submission of outline proposals for change, as a Strategic Outline Programme, submitted to DCELLS, by January 15th 2009.
The framework has been designed in such a way that it encourages stakeholders to develop local solutions to local needs rather than a one-size-fits all model across Wales.
The implementation of the policy is expected to result in significant benefits for learners with a firm focus on improved skill levels for all young people and adults. Its successor document, “Transformation – Y Siwrnai”, which was published in November 2009, details ‘y siwrnai’/’the journey’ that stakeholders have been taking to implement the post-16 phase of the Transformation Policy.
