    So now the only A level provision in Knowsley is the Community College of FE, how is this going to work when funding for FE colleges has been hacked, and yet all children have to stay in fulltime education until they are 18?

    My 18 year old son is at College full time which is 2.5 days a week! Why is it that less time and money is spent on those taking vocational courses? Who is checking whether these young people are in some form of education? Some of his friends have dropped out and there seems to be no advice out there for them.
    As usual these decisions are made on high without thinking about how it will work and what it will cost.
    Let's not pretend that the whole idea was a way of keeping young people off the unemployment/welfare figures.

    The girl I used to foster simply refuses to go to school, but she gets her money anyway.
