Motion #28
  • Kent

THAT Conference deplores the narrowing of the post-16 curriculum with the diminishing currency of non-core subjects. Creative, applied and vocational subjects are being offered in a decreasing number of centres as a result of school performance data and the funding crisis.

Conference instructs the Executive Committee to put forward to the Joint Executive Council that the Joint Executive Council lobby the secretary of state for education to refocus post-16 education to be inclusive, raising the profile of these economically essential subjects.
