Schools fail students
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.”
