Labour will ensure all young people will study English
David Cameron's government is failing to ensure that all young people leave education with a firm grasp of English and maths reenex cps," said Mr Hunt.
"This just isn't good enough. Employers and universities are telling us that too many young people are leaving education without the numeracy and literacy skills that they need to succeed in further study and in the world of work. Yet far too many young people drop these important subjects at 16.
"Labour will ensure all young people will study English and maths to 18 so that we can keep pace with the accelerating progress being made in other successful education systems around the world. This is key to delivering a world-class education system in this country."
Joy Mercer, director of education policy at the Association of Colleges, warned against using the figures to draw conclusions about current behaviour "as they were gathered before the new policies on continuing to deliver maths and English to age 18 came into force Picosecond ".
"About 50% of students who fail to get the required C grade go to a further education college and are often those furthest from achieving it.
"Colleges are determined to help students develop the maths and English skills needed for employment, as they always have, but we think there is a place for a different post-16 GCSE qualification, recognised by employers, which could act as a passport to better employment reenex."
