Nuffield Review of 14-19 Education and Training
The Nuffield Foundation funded a six-year independent review of 14-19 education and training from October 2003 to September 2009. It was shaped throughout by the answers to the question: What counts as an educated 19 year old in this day and age?
In its final report, the Review made five over-arching demands:
- The re-assertion of a broader vision of education.
- System performance indicators ‘fit for purpose’.
- The re-distribution of power and decision-making.
- The creation of strongly collaborative local learning systems.
- The development of a more unified system of qualifications.
A summary of the final report, along with several other key publications from the Review, is available to download from the table below.
