The critical skills programme which he describes is just as applicable to the secondary as the primary sector. Indeed, since UK training in critical skills began in Edinburgh in February 2000 almost 500 teachers from pre-school through to higher education have found that it has radically improved their professional skills.
It is also worth emphasising that the CSP approach enables pupils to develop a deeper understanding of content in all areas of the mainstream curriculum, as well as a comprehensive range of key skills and fundamental attitudes. I am more than happy to put people in touch with colleagues who can bear witness to this.
