DoE and BIS left hand and right hand

The Government, through a Dept of Education spokesperson says this.

"We are replacing the system which rewarded schools to push pupils to scrape a C and moving to a new system which encourages high-achievers and recognises schools for the progress made by all pupils."

At exactly the same time we have the Dept for BIS making it a condition of funding and saying that anyone who misses scraping a C must do GCSE re-sits until they do scrape a C instead of the far more practical and useful Functional Skills option!

It just really doesn't work does it?
