Tech-level qualifications to have same status as A-Levels

Technical courses for 16 to 19-year-olds will gain the same status as A-levels from 2014 but only if they attract business or university support, the government has announced.

The Tech-level qualifications are aimed at raising the status of vocational qualifications in England.

The overhaul follows concerns about variable quality.
