April 4, 2003

The article "Business will pay if courses meet needs" ( THES, March 28) bears little relevance to the accompanying photograph of student engineers with a racing car they built in six months as part of a Birmingham University project.

The students gained skills useful to industry, but the article failed to link the Formula Student competition philosophy to education secretary Charles Clarke's skills strategy.
