Schools to be accountable for pupils career success
18 Feb 2011
Schools will be held accountable for the career success of their pupils under a government plan to publish information about the proportion who go on to university or get jobs after they leave.
The plan is part of a strategy to increase pressure on schools to deliver good outcomes for pupils. Ministers are concerned that schools have entered pupils for qualifications that boost their standing in league tables, but do not help young people get into a good university or secure a well-paid job.
