We are teaching our children in a curriculum style that isn’t vastly different from the one taught decades ago. Already it is proving to be a completely useless tool in the making of a young person. Yesterday an entrepreneurial young guy came into my office with his CV, looking for a job. I really felt for him. It takes enormous nerve to go door-to-door handing out your CV and looking for work – in his words, any sort of work. I’d have loved to give him some, but with the greatest of respect, his qualifications rendered him useless to me. He had plenty of GCSE’s, AS levels and an NVQ, but what could the guy actually do? Nothing. What was he interested in? Nothing. What did he want to be? Anything that paid. He’d got an education but he hadn’t got a strategy.
