Simply Learning: Improving the skills system in England

This report looks at the skills system in England in order to understand the problems which beset it and to offer recommendations for reform. It offers a critique of the 2006 Leitch review, which is seen as the major driving force behind recent Government policy on skills. Leitch promised us a simplified and demand led system, but what we have now is in fact the exact opposite.
