Head of British Industry Lobby Preaches Practical Vocational Education

The head of the CBI says a date must be set in the next five years to scrap the current secondary educational system and introduce an exam system with equal status for vocational subjects.
John Cridland, director general of CBI, says England's exam system is narrow and out of date.
He proposes a system in which the most important exams would be A-levels, including both academic and vocational subjects, taken at the age of 18.
