Successive UK governments have adopted failure as a strategy in the reform of public education in England: first, to construct crises in order to blame professionals/parents/children for a failing system; and second, to provide rescue solutions that are designed to fail in order to sustain the change imperative. We describe this as policy…

McLoughlin, Shane; Pendrous, Rosina; Henderson, Emerald; Kristjansson, Kristján – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2023
Ofsted requires UK schools to help students understand the working world and gain employability skills.
