Youthscan will involve every maintained public and private secondary institution for secondary and special education in the UK. It thus provides an opportunity to invite head teachers/masters/mistresses to give their own judgement on a number of important issues concerning secondary education and the transition from adolescence to adult life. We hope you will be willing to give your own analysis about some of these issues. You may care to give your views on the following:
  1. How to maintain a balance between upholding academic standards and meeting the needs of manpower, industry and modern technology?
Long text
  1. How to ease the transition from secondary/further/higher education to the adult world of the 21st century?
Long text
  1. How should schools approach preparation of pupils for the increase in disposable time consequent upon mechanisation and the lack of opportunity for conventional employment?
Long text
  1. More specifically, what if any are the special circumstances relative to your own school neighbourhood? Could you for instance, let us know the major strengths/weaknesses/needs for improvement/necessary innovations, relevant to your own school situation.
Long text
Confidentiality will be respected fully. A self-sealing container is provided in case you wish your views to remain entirely private. No school or person will be identified by name in any report. Please feel free to express your views in anyway you wish. If you would like to go on to use a separate sheet please staple it to this questionnaire.

Youthscan will involve every maintained public and private secondary institution for secondary and special education in the UK. It thus provides an opportunity to invite head teachers/masters/mistresses to give their own judgement on a number of important issues concerning secondary education and the transition from adolescence to adult life. We hope you will be willing to give your own analysis about some of these issues. You may care to give your views on the following:
a) How to maintain a balance between upholding academic standards and meeting the needs of manpower, industry and modern technology?
Long text
b) How to ease the transition from secondary/further/higher education to the adult world of the 21st century?
Long text
c) How should schools approach preparation of pupils for the increase in disposable time consequent upon mechanisation and the lack of opportunity for conventional employment?
Long text
d) More specifically, what if any are the special circumstances relative to your own school neighbourhood? Could you for instance, let us know the major strengths/weaknesses/needs for improvement/necessary innovations, relevant to your own school situation.
Long text
Confidentiality will be respected fully. A self-sealing container is provided in case you wish your views to remain entirely private. No school or person will be identified by name in any report. Please feel free to express your views in anyway you wish. If you would like to go on to use a separate sheet please staple it to this questionnaire.
