It is all change with the UK education system, see link below:
I am so relived both as a parent and a teacher that we are making the move to Australia. I don’t fancy my children been the guinea pigs for the new 2 tier system. Will be fine for the bright who will succeed anyway, but nothing has been suggested for the less academic. Every time a new specification is introduced it takes a couple of years to iron out the teething problems, how long will it take when everything is being rewritten?
Sorry – rant over!
