So Sandy Leitch (he who went out with Blunkett's amour - small world indeed) delivers his 'generation changing' report. What a yawn!
The BIG idea was that students should stay on at school until 18 unless they find a job with training. Interesting - but a pipedream.
As for the rest...
1. Employers disengage because they have to deal with too many agencies.
LEITCH: Create another agency (sorry commission).
2. ILAs (Individual Learner Accounts) collapsed in a swamp of fraud.
LEITCH: Revive Learner Accounts
This was a wasted opportunity, a chance to recommend some real institutinal change and a more radical approach to the problem. What we got was a little reorganisation and some old hat ideas.
