Scotland: Review calls for training shake-up


Thu Aug 18 2011


(From Press Association) -- Workplace education and training should have the needs of individual learners at its heart, according to a new report.

A review of vocational education was carried out by Willy Roe, chairman of Highlands and Island Enterprise and commissioner on the UK Commission for Employment and Skills.


The report provides a number of specific recommendations aimed at improving education and training for the workplace, providing better value for money and improving support for unemployed young people.

It states: "The report argues that the post-16 education and vocational training arrangements should be strengthened and better integrated with other parts of the education and employment systems.

"In addition, Scotland should commit to creating a truly coherent and high-performing system with the individual learner at its heart."
