Whole Education

A gulf has opened between what education systems provide and what young people need. Our education system rightly attempts to provide young people with literacy, numeracy and academic qualifications. But this emphasis on a set of core academic skills and a culture of intensive testing too often squeezes out other essential capabilities also required from a modern education. At a time of great social change these capabilities prepare young people for life in a competitive, globalised economy and a much more fragile and uncertain society.

Many schools, employers, parents and children are already aware that there is a misalignment between what is happening in the classroom and what is required for a decent and productive life. Something more is required to prepare today’s young people fully for the fast changing demands of the 21st century.

Whole Education draws together leading schools and organisations committed that believe all young people should have a fully rounded education.
