TES: Revealed: UTC attainment gap for pre and post-16s

New research finds that while 14-year-olds who enrol at University Technical Colleges (UTCs) get significantly worse GCSE results than their peers, 16-year-olds who enrol at a UTC outperform their peers in skills and technical education. It also uncovers evidence that the age at which students move to UTCs - currently 14 - needs serious policy consideration.

The Guardian: Only radical reform can fix Britain's broken ladder of social mobility

Lee Elliot Major and Stephen Machin argue how political reform is needed to solve issues with social mobility resulting from Covid-19. They explain that the findings of their review of evidence on social mobility suggest that failure to act now will only create more problems for future generations.
