Schools fail stu­dents

Warwickshire Telegraph - - NATIONAL -

SCHOOLS are fail­ing in their duty to en­able fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion providers to tell pupils about al­ter­na­tives to A-lev­els, re­search sug­gests.

Ac­cord­ing to data from the In­sti­tute for Pub­lic Pol­icy Re­search (IPPR), the ma­jor­ity of in­sti­tu­tions do not al­low ac­cess to pupils so they can be told about op­por­tu­ni­ties to gain tech­ni­cal qual­i­fi­ca­tions.

IPPR re­searcher Dean Hochlaf, said: “Young peo­ple should be free to choose. They need to un­der­stand the va­ri­ety of op­tions avail­able lo­cally.”
