    do you think that you should have secondary schools that teach what you want to learn like for example if you wanted to go into the police force like i do you would go to a school that would teach things that relate to the police but still have maths english ans etcetc

    Exactly, therefore teaching the core subjects has to be a priority.

    No. I think you should learn more general things at 2ndry school and if you want to learn other stuff it should be extra-curricular. That way you are able to demonstrate a more genuine interest/desire in whatever it is you want to do.

    Not really. You go through training when you actually join the poilce force. I'd say for some skilled jobs with major shortages at the moment like plumbers and carpenters, the easiest way to let people learn the trade is by giving them a day release or something, i'm sure the government have been thinking about bringing something like this in. And I suppose even if the person doesnt go on to be a plumber, at least the skills they learnt would help them greatly in later life financially

    There is however the CCF in schools, which is very much geared to a career in the armed forces.

    Thats what my college does. In Key Skills, you learn Key Skills relvant to the course.

    e.g. If you took the Sports Course, you would have to work out the area of the local cricket pitch.

    i think there are lots of people doing skilled jobs training right now, so we'll have an influx of them. maybe

    Hopefully. I'd say a plumber could earn as much as a high paid lawyer in some parts of the country. More plumbers = lower prices
