Cullingford, Cedric (2004) Pupil's attitudes to industry. Journal of Education and Work, 17 (3). pp. 347-359. ISSN 1363-9080

The relationship between schooling and employability is both close and ambiguous;
close because governments are always keen that education should promote those
practical skills that are employable. To this end, considerable investment has been made in
promoting the virtues of industry. The question remains whether all the initiatives have
successfully developed more positive views in pupils towards the world of work and industry,
in its broadest sense, in particular. The issue is explored through lengthy semi-structured
interviews with pupils in Years 10 and 11, carefully balanced in terms of socio-economic
background and their future intentions.
