update

Geoff Holden November 2012






Any young person’s programme of study, whether ‘academic’ or
vocational’, should provide for personal, career and educational progress on a
wide front




We believe people need accurate and useful information on careers and
eductaional options, so that they can make decisions accordingly. 14
-

education is funded and provided for their sakes, not for the sake of the
institutions




We have had over 20 years of micro
-
management and mounting
bureaucratic costs and it is time this changed







We believe in three clear principles for education

‘Young people should enter adulthood
with the confidence, ability and desire to
make their world a better place. The
route to achieving this is the curriculum

expectation
