A review of vocational qualification achievements in the UK

This research by independent education foundation Edge found that nearly two-thirds (65%) of graduates believe it is a good idea for current university students to study for a vocational qualification in addition to their degree courses. It also found that VQs are a rapidly growing feature of the school curriculum, particularly for the 14–16 age group. Schools accounted for 322,000 vocationally- related qualifications achieved in 2007–8, more than twice as many as the previous year. Leadership Briefings Issue 4.02 (38)
