Report calls for teenagers to receive 'character and resilience' skills

February 12, 2014 9:18 am

A report from the All Party Parliamentary Group on Social Mobility and the CentreForum think-tank has said that all teenagers should receive a school leaving certificate which details their extra-curricular activities and employability skills. The report argues that the certificate would show that pupils – rather than just graduating from ‘exam factories’ – have developed traits such as perseverance, self-control and the ability to bounce back from setbacks. It also states that taking part in extra-curricular activities, which help build pupils’ character, should also be made a more central aspect of a school’s purpose and a teacher’s job.
