PPTA applauds the recent focus on improving the options and quality of transitions for students moving between secondary school and further education and training.
The Association has extensive policy on the transition from school to work or further education and training, dating from the late 1960s. For years, PPTA Conferences have been calling for some coherency around what was known as “the jagged edge”. In May 2008, PPTA produced a document, Secondary Forward (download from resources/publications) which drew all PPTA policy on the issue together to form a comprehensive statement of where PPTA stands. The ten recommendations from the publication (listed above) formed the basis of the PPTA policy.
