There are or should I say there were established technical qualifications available in this country such as BTECs, OND,ONC, HND,HNC, NVQs with the accompanying college theory. All required some level industry input with tech college support.
We also have the standard science qualifications such as  As, A Levels and the less scienfic Baccaleaureate...
If the T cert is to inspire a new wave of accademic confidence then albeit but it does sound as if we will be receiving another dumbing down in content and time so that industry can get the trainees out on the road with a single skill appoach as soon as possible.

Yes, as I stated in the last paragraph.
Why not use the NVQs that already exist rather than expending all that energy reshaping a round wheel?
