The Edge is an independent foundation promoting practical and vocational learning in the UK. Along the lines of Ken Robinson's criticisms of the education system only catering to academically minded children who want to be University Professors, (see earlier post about his speech on TED), the Edge hope to give all young people the opportunities to achieve their potential by running campaigns and projects to challenge academic snobbery and stimulate a demand for practical learning.

"We Are The People We've Been Waiting For" is a great interactive website of theirs. Luckily when I was a teenager I knew what I wanted to do and nothing would stop me from following that path, but for all those kids out there that don't fit into the cookie cutter mold, this is light at the end of a very dark and hormonally off balance tunnel will be truly welcome........
