In Education one size does not fit all

'One size fits all' system lets down less academic pupils, warns Ofsted chief
Sir Michael Wilshaw condemns youth unemployment record in UK, saying those who fail at 16 are ‘left behind’


Pupils who are less academic are being let down by a “one size fits all” education system that fails to prepare them for the world of work, the chief inspector of schools is expected to warn in a speech on Monday.

In what will be seen as a sharp rebuke to the government, Sir Michael Wilshaw will criticise the UK’s record on youth unemployment, blaming the failure to provide high quality vocational training for teenagers who don’t go into higher education.

He will say that educational provision for the many children who do not succeed at 16 – or those who don’t want to pursue an academic path – is “inadequate at best and non-existent at worst”.
