Consultation: A world-class education system: The Advanced British Standard

The Advanced British Standard presents an opportunity to ensure the 16-19 education system is world leading and that every young person, regardless of their socio-economic background, location, or circumstances can reach their potential and gain both the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in a major global economy.

We support the government’s ambition to ensure that the Advanced British Standard has a clear offer for all students. Improving levels of awareness around the broad range of entry routes to a fulfilling career in the Accountancy profession is one of our core priorities; this includes work being undertaken across schools and education institutions in the UK and worldwide.

We would welcome the opportunity to feed into the development of the ABS and engage in future consultation, at this stage we are pleased to share some general observations on the consultation response document found on this page.
