Baker Clause

What is the Baker Clause?​

Introduced as an amendment to the Technical and Further Education Act 2017, the Baker Clause stipulates that schools must allow colleges and training providers access to every student in years 8- 13 to discuss non-academic routes that are available to them​.​

At Heartlands Academy, we ensure that there is an opportunity for a range of education and training providers to access all pupils in Years 7 to Year 11 for the purpose of informing them about approved technical education qualifications or apprenticeships – at least twice a year – every academic year our students are with us!​

Our policy statement sets out arrangements for provider access and we ensure that it is followed.

We have also published a policy statement detailing the ways in which colleges and training providers are granted access which includes:​

  1. Our procedural requirements in relation to requests for access
  2. Our grounds for granting and refusing requests for access
  3. Details of our premises or facilities we will provide to a person who is given access​
  4. Finding our more
