Take-up of intermediate technical education in England has been in decline for the last few years, particularly in subjects such as engineering.
Pye Tait was commissioned to examine the possible reasons for the decline in take-up and to investigate whether there is potential for unmet demand from employers for intermediate technical qualifications.
Offered by Further Education Colleges and Higher Education Institutions in England, intermediate-level qualifications take the form of mainly HNCs, HNDs, and Foundation Degrees.
Research is ongoing.
