Our Childrens Education
Our children are very important to us, so it’s obvious that we want to ensure that their educational years are the best they can get. The educational system can be a complex and difficult one to get your head around, yes we’ve all been there but each year, schools change something to make it completely different, and over the years, the schooling system has changing beyond recognition to today’s parents. O levels are now A levels, SATs are soon going to be removed from the system, so it’s important we gain a good perspective on the systems as they stand today.
The educational system in Britain has always been overseen by the Department for Children, Schools and Families, as well as the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. Full-time education is compulsory for all children between the ages of 5 and 16, once these years have been completed, students then have the opportunity to partake in a further 2 years of education in the forms of ‘college’ or ‘sixth form’, by taking this extended education, students have the chance to gain A level qualifications.
After these years have been completed, students can then choose to embark upon higher education, this usually lasts for around 3 years, and students can gain anything from a bachelor’s degree up to a Masters Degree. University is the only educational stage that you must pay for, unless of course you choose to go private during your child’s younger years, but funding can often be received through financing from the state, or a ‘student loan’.
