Vocational Education

Sometimes Education news is like Buses; nothing for ages then three turn up at once...

Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education has published a report about the provision of vocational opportunities for school pupils through Further Education colleges. "Working Together: cross sectoral provision of vocational education for Scotland's school pupils" highlights the growth of school-college partnership working, but says that too few schools consider vocational education as something that might be an option for all pupils (not just the less academically-inclined ones).

It also stresses the need for strong quality assurance, so that young people are directed towards courses that do genuinely meet their needs and then have a quality experience from the course.
