Education-to-Employment Gap - Need for A Joined-Up Approach
I think the big question for any start-up to decide upon is whether they are in the game of Disruptive or Sustaining Innovation. Disruptive may be the buzzword, but not every business is, or should be, disruptive. In fact, the start-ups solely focused on E2E gap is in the business of Sustaining Innovation, as they are building a better, more relevant, product. One could perhaps build Disruptive models in the area of Educational Access, where they can bring non-consumers to education (like the French school, Ecole 42). From that perspective, one could perhaps see who should be inside the system - those building sustaining innovation - and who should be outside - those in the disruption business! But, we still need a joined-up approach, with its first principle being the need of a diverse education sector, which is beyond these artificially imposed labels.
