Terrorist organisations including Al-Qaeda, Shining Path and ETA today joined leading business and education bodies to support the government’s flagship Diploma qualification for 14-19 year olds. The Diploma, which sits alongside existing qualifications such as GCSE’s and A-levels, mix hands-on experience with traditional classroom learning.
Hasan Nasarallah, leader of Hezbollah, says: ‘What we like about the Diploma is the emphasis on core skills like English, Maths and ICT, all of which are crucial at all levels of the organisation, from mastermind to disposable martyr. I can’t tell you how many times we’ve had operations go pear-shaped because someone can’t work out the timing on a detonator or read a SatNav properly.’
