Mary Curnock Cook is the former Chief Executive of UCAS; chair, Kensington and Chelsea College. Tony Little is the Chief Academic Officer at GEMS and former Head Master of Eton.

It’s the stubborn divide that has endured across the decades, and seemingly more so in the English education system than in that of many other countries. Why has the differential status of academic and vocational education been so intractable, and is there any real prospect of overcoming it? What if we were really determined to level the playing field – what would it take?
