The Bacc for the Future campaign has done an excellent job of highlighting the challenges posed by the introduction of the government’s target for 90% of pupils to study the narrow English Baccalaureate (EBacc).
The Edge Foundation’s New Baccalaureate proposes to retain the important academic core but create space in the curriculum for all young people to study technical and creative subjects that will give them the breadth of skills and knowledge they need for exciting jobs in our economy as technology develops. You can read more in our publication 14-19 Education: A New Baccalaurate.
We will continue to work with partners to encourage the government to broaden the EBacc and adopt our New Baccalaureate to give every young person the opportunity to reach their potential. We would love you to join us. Please show your support today by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
