Still no progress;Letter

IN MAY, we ordered from the Department for Education and Employment 350 copies of the Post-16 National Progress File for students to use at the beginning of their course.

The aims of the file include planning, taking responsibility for one's actions, target setting and making effective use of time.

Two weeks into the autumn term, after several phone calls, we received 150 files. We are told that the rest are at the printers and we should receive them this week.
