Standards Unit

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Following the UK government strategy for the development of the learning and skills sector as outlined in Success for All (2002), a new Standards Unit was set up in 2003 at the Department for Education and Skills. The role of the Standards Unit was to identify and disseminate best practice and to ‘lead the transformation of teaching and learning and leadership across the learning and skills sector’. Teaching and learning frameworks were developed as resources in curriculum priority areas such as Entry to Employment, science, construction, and business. The Standards Unit was then transferred to the Learning and Skills Development Agency, which in 2006 was reorganized into the Quality Improvement Agency.
