    I am a student at the university of Lincoln and conducting my final year dissertation on the fitness of the current education system in preparing the future workforce.

    If you can please take 5 minutes to complete this short survey it would really help with my study.

    Please follow the link to participate:

    Thank you,

    Just gave it a go.

    I teach in a primary so not as relevant as secondary but still worthwhile to think about.

    Thank you. I completely understand and have the same views that it is much more relevant from secondary school and above but I had to include primary schools due to businesses asking for career ideas being introduced from such a young age.

    Thank you for your time in completing the questionnaire. It is appreciated.

    Is there any particular reason why the level options jump straight from secondary school to university, leaving out virtually the whole of the the FE sector -exactly where one might reasonably expect most preparation for employment to take place?

    Not a criticism, just curious.

    no particular reason just a wording issue on my end. I apologise. For the purpose of this study any teaching up to A-level (or equivalent) should be classed as 'secondary' any teaching of qualifications above a-level should be classed as 'university' even if at a FE institution.

    Sorry for the confusion.
