You shouldn't really do it since it means that the work submitted is your's and not the students, but I know its commonplace. Sure it improves the school's grades and keeps Ofsted happy which seems to be the driving force these days in Education. What concerns me however is something a friend in Industry told me recently. In his workplace, and its apparently a widespread belief, they treat qualifications based largely on course work as very suspect and don't really count them. Further comments by business leaders on the news following the Government's request to employ British labour only confirm this. What can be done to reverse this opinion?
