Provider Access

The Baker Clause is an amendment to the Technical and Further Education Act, which requires schools to proactively provide access to their students to alternative providers of technical and post 14, 16 and 18 education.

It requires that all schools ensures that all students have access to hear what the following providers offer:

  • At 14: studio schools, university technical colleges, further education colleges, in relation to any opportunities for 14 year old enrolment;
  • At 16: apprenticeship providers, further education colleges, sixth form colleges, work-based training providers;
  • At 18: apprenticeship providers, higher education providers.

Worcester Sixth Form College fully adheres to all aspects of the Baker Clause.
