Policy breakfast briefing: The Wolf Report

What does the Wolf Report mean for UK schools and colleges? This event looked at Alison Wolf’s 2011 review of vocational education, its context and its impact in detail. You can watch the video here.

In her report, Wolf set out to design a system that ensures a better fit between the needs of young people and the needs of the labour market. Her work both challenged some unpleasant truths and left others open to interpretation.
