IN DAYS when much is made of the need for education and industry to get together it is easy to forget that, not more than ten years ago, they were scarcely on speaking terms. Many industrial education officers who were trying to build up effective education and training schemes found that their attempts to interest headmasters and headmistresses in what they were doing were viewed not only with suspicion, but even with grave hostility. This was particularly apparent when school heads were approached to provide reports on schoolleavers whom the firm wished to consider as possible recruits. The heads, often rightly so, were concerned lest unscrupulous employers used the schools as a means of touting for cheap labour and took on youngsters for jobs whether or not they were suitable for them.
