Training providers have been left livid and refusing to sign contracts after the Department for Education revealed their researchers would randomly reject half of all eligible bootcamp applicants.

I'm staggered that a randomised blind test on humans in essentially social studies research would ever get ethical approval. These sorts of educational projects are evaluated all the time, always by a sort of action research input-response methodology. In clinical blind trials there has to be a high potential benefit in order to make the trial acceptable (simply because those on placebo are at a disadvantage compared to those on the studied treatment).

I've got experience with this and I can't remember any study working like this. If I were part of the ethics committee I'd turn it down flat. I wonder if the Rat Boy is actually following the rules here.

You probably get told to apply for it or referred to it by the JCP, because it would be beneficial (former JCP 19+ contractor speaking). They're making JCP complicit in this, and will screw up their performance targets in the process.

Not that that's the main issue, but it's there.

No, Mr Sanders Kristal, UCAS Head of operations, 20% is not just a small percentage, it is fully one fifth of all university applicants. :roll:

And they've been forced to do a U-turn. They're now on a witch-hunt to find out who leaked their secret plan to the press.

I suppose they think ethics is the county south of Suffolk.

The DFE put a post on Facebook yesterday claiming that Marcus Rashford had given his backing to their initiative to help pooper pupils over the holidays. This looks like a very convenient re-writing of history. From what I can remember the DFE was looking to cut help to poorer children over the holidays until Marcus launched a campaign which forced them to make a 'U'turn.
