© Synovate Education We Want…………. Less educated: Significant proportions of those in secondary school are more likely to be self employed. Would the % of this target group be higher with a more vocational based education system? Curriculum: can the curriculum be tailored to meet the needs of the employment market? Should the secondary education focus be more on vocational skills training for students will low academic potential?
© Synovate Education We Want…………. Attitudinal change: there is a view that academic excellence results to professional success and vocational competencies are looked down upon. Eventually, a large proportion of those who do not attain high grades still pursue vocational careers or are unemployed. What can be done to foster attitudinal change that will encourage and promote vocational skills capability?
