'No coherence' on Higher Still

29th March 1996 at 00:00
There could be no confidence in the progress of the Higher Still development programme, which should probably be delayed for a further year, Mr Corsar said. The first pupils due to sit the new exams were currently in S2 and they were having to make a choice of subjects that would affect them at Higher Still.

The Government had prevented co-ordination of Higher Still with the 5-14 programme and had removed the careers service from local authorities at a point when vocational links with schools were becoming increasingly significant. "There is no coherence," Mr Corsar said.

He had equally hard words for Labour. The party's recent education paper showed a lack of appreciation of teacher workload which would be greatly increased by the proposal for individual compacts with every pupil.
