The T level reforms are a key area of focus for FAB in 2018 and we will be responding formally to the T level consultation. As always, it is crucial that our consultation response reflects the views of our members. We are therefore, in addition to the stakeholder consultation events, holding two consultation events in January 2018 exclusively for members. At these events, we will discuss our planned response and invite members’ comments and feedback on key areas of the consultation document. There will also be an opportunity to discuss key issues with colleagues from other AOs and identify the type of support that FAB can most usefully provide to members as this policy area develops.

If you would like to join us to shape our consultation response, please register:

  • 22 January 2018, Central London, 10.30am-4.00pm
  • 24 January 2018, Birmingham, 10.30am-4.00pm
