TOOLS to WORK with.

"Which way now?" re Choice Options.

A young person’s learning between the ages of 14 and 19 is of great importance in preparing them for life and work. Teenagers are now at the point where they need to choose the subjects and qualifications they want to take in years 10 and 11.

They also need to start forming a view on what they will do after year 11 which will inform their subject choices now and learning options later. One thing is certain, all young people will continue to learn and should receive a learning experience which promotes equality of opportunity and is free from discrimination.
