It's a jungle..

The Learning and Skills Development Agency has released a CD-Rom titled Making it vocational; working with employers, on the subject of vocational GCSEs.

The disk is presented in a lovely little wallet, with a picture of a lecturer holding up the skin of a leopard in front of a class of presumably rather bemused students.

The text on the wallet explains the LSDA has been contracted by the Department for Education and Skills to "deliver a programme of training."

Well, I don't blame for DfES for that. You can't trust the Royal Mail to deliver anything these days, and I hear there's a healthy black market for LSDA stuff.

But what I want to know is when the LSDA is going to stop encouraging people to go around skinning wild animals for learning materials.
