Ofsted publishes report on “Economics, business and enterprise education”

This Ofsted report is based on data from 28 primary and 100 secondary schools as well as 33 colleges from across England, between April 07 and March 10. It covers both formally assessed economics and business courses and whole-school enterprise education. One of the Recommendations is that the Department for Education should “as part of its National Curriculum Review, consider the place of well-planned provision for enterprise education (that is, the promotion of economic and buisness understanding and enterprise and financial capability) at all key stages; so that young people leave school well-informed and well-prepared to function as consumers, employees, potential employers, and to contribute as citizens to the complex and dynamic economic, business and financial environment in which they live”.  For further information, see: http://www.ofsted.gov.uk/Ofsted-home/Publications-and-research/Browse-all-by/Documents-by-type/Thematic-reports/Economics-business-and-enterprise-education or download the full report from the Research Library: http://www.enterprisingyorkshire.co.uk/resources/research_library
