School Improvement – or the ‘Equivalent’


This report from independent think-tank Civitas looks at vocational qualifications and asks whether such learning is too advanced to be suitable for pupils below the age of 16. It shows how a blind focus on the A*-C benchmark, together with a failure to truly improve schools, has led to a scenario in which pupils are being encouraged to opt out of academic courses and into irrelevant so-called 'vocational' qualifications to boost national GCSE results.
