Students are fodder for CBI

Issue No. 2252

Bosses want to turn education into a big training camp for business.

The bosses’ CBI organisation will bestow certificates on students if they complete hundreds of hours of work and tasks including volunteering, work experience and skills training.

The Tories are already slashing education. Students are forced to pay spiralling tuition fees and to work to survive.

They now face their education choices being limited even further by the needs of business.

Many will be angry that the National Union of Students is backing the project, which is sponsored by accountants KPMG and multinational Centrica.
