Duke launches new award

ARTICLE from THE TIMES: 8th July 2013
QUOTE:
The Duke of York has called for greater respect for young people who train to be machinists, builders or technicians, saying that vocational skills deserve a higher status.

Prince Andrew said that the “conventional route” of A levels leading straight to university did not suit everyone and alternatives should be better recognised.

He will visit a technical school in Walsall, West Midlands, today to announce a new award for technical education modelled on the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award started by his father in 1956.

The Duke of York Award will issue bronze, silver and gold certificates for a combination of vocational qualifications, work experience and skills such as problem-solving, teamwork and communications.

Prince Andrew said: “The conventional route is as good as any, but there are other ways of doing it, and not everybody fits into it. There is another side to this. The conventional education may not fit the needs of the workplace.

“In fact, I think there is already a mismatch between what qualifications we are producing and what the workplace needs. So let’s open the opportunities up.

“I don’t want young people to feel that they are being told they are not good enough to do something. At no stage should anything in their education be de-motivational.”

The launch of the Duke of York Award for Technical Education marks a stepping up of Prince Andrew’s work supporting skills, science and enterprise.

He is also to become patron of the Baker Dearing Educational Trust, a charity that is opening 45 technical colleges for teenagers aged 14 to 18. Initially the award will be for students at its colleges, but it may be extended after its first two years.

The Duke has made 12 visits to these technical schools, and this year became patron of the Studio Schools Trust, which is creating a similar network of small vocational schools for 14 to 19-year-olds.

Full article for those able to access: We want builders, not just graduates, says Duke | The Times


I think this is a great idea - it is a return to Tech Colleges which produced engineers, builders, plumbers, mechanics etc - skills that every society requires

I agree Cepe. Now if the DOY plumps for a good wage for laborers - ooops, that would make it political wouldn't it?

I was reading the paper this morning and saw something about Prince Andrew's new Twitter account. The article (it was more of a section) that I read said that Andrew has already gained 15,000 followers. That's a lot of followers to gain in one day!

There's one correction that needs to be made in the article- in the third paragraph about HM favouring modern technology, one sentence reads "She now has more than 125,000 YouTube subscribers and nearly half a million followers on Twitter." I don't think HM has an official Twitter account that she updates herself. Perhaps they meant her parody account.

Very good that Andrew has decided to join Twitter. He and his ex can follow each other now.

Well, since last night Sarah has been following Andrew on Twitter, retweeting one of his tweets and tweeting to him, too. He doesn't seem to be following her, though.

I think they mean "royal" rather than HMQ. Elizabeth Windsor on twitter has over a million followers - its v funny.

Thanks for the clarification.

Me and a friend were on Twitter yesterday and we looked at Andrew's account and we saw that he had around 64,000 followers. He's probably gained more today. I think he could have over a million followers soon!
