About this title

Synopsis:

The authors provide an overview of current policy in the 14-19 area. They cover changes to 14-19 education, diplomas, and work-based learning in the context of new developments.

They provide a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the new 14-19 phase with a focus on A levels and GCSEs, the new 14-19 Diplomas vocational learning and institutional collaboration. Drawing on international and historical analysis, recent research and practice and interveiws with policy actors, the authors set out the case for a more unified and strongly collaborative approach to the organisation of upper secondary education in England.

The book is intended for education practitioners, policy-makers and researchers. It is for PGCE students on new 14-19 courses, and for those following Masters level courses on 14-19 curriculum and training.

The authros are both co-directors of the Nuffielld Review of 14-19 Education and Training in England and Wales, which is a six-year independent review of all aspects of 14-19 policy, research and practice funded by the Nuffield Foundation. The Review is based at the Department of Educational Studies, Oxford University.

Review:

′[T]hose concerned about the qualifications available to young people would do well to read [this book] carefully′ - Post-16 Educator

′Ann Hodgson and Ken Spours are recognised as two of the most insightful and incisive commentators on 14-19 education in England. This book will be read with interest by teachers and lecturers, policy-makers, researchers and everyone with an interest in the future of this key sector of education′ - Professor David Raffe, Centre for Educational Sociology, University of Edinburgh

‘It is not necessary to agree with everything in this volume in order to recognise it as absolutely essential reading for anyone with an interest in 14-19 policy and practice. It is the ideal catalyst to provoke some much needed debate and new thinking on this key topic’ -

Professor Ewart Keep, Deputy Director, ESRC Centre on Skills, Knowledge & Organizational Performance,University of Cardiff

′...This book offers a critical and informed analysis of the need for reform and the progress made to date. It is essential reading for both policy makers and practitioners′ - Sir Mike Tomlinson, Chief Adviser for London Challenge and former Chair of the Working Group on 14-19 Reform
