Sixteen is no longer the critical point in education, and the formulation of the last two years of compulsory education and the sector often called 'further education' as '14-19 education' has signalled an emphasis on achieving greater coherence for young people in their education and training experiences. This book maps out what is different and uniquely challenging about 14-19 education, plots the history of attempts at reform, examines the current experiences of those in this age group, and then identifies some of the directions and possibilities for the future. In doing so it argues that the distinctive characteristics of the 14-19 phase are intensity, contradiction, conflict and confusion and that despite the high stakes context of this phase many of the initiatives will be doomed to failure without a fundamental reappraisal of the what the phase should be achieving.
