  11. 11. 5. My Views of the reform <ul><li>In my view of the change, I think it will be good for students to experience employment with education and the 4 learning pathways will give the young people an opportunity to decide what they want to do also give them a taste of the real world whilst still have the support from the education system. </li></ul><ul><li>It is important to adapt to these changes with all the other technological changes that are happening globally as this will give the younger generation a better future. </li></ul>
  12. 12. 6. Views of others of the reform <ul><li>Whilst researching on this topic and providing, my views on the issue. </li></ul><ul><li>I think it was important for me to find out the views of others and the effect it will have on them. I asked both students and teachers on their view of the change 14-19 curriculum. </li></ul>
  13. 13. 6a. Views from Teachers <ul><li>Some of the views I received from teachers about the change in the 14-19 curriculum said that it would put them at more pressure and fear that they may have to undergo further learning and training to understand of the adaptation. </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers were also worried with the introduction of the 4 learning pathways how would this effect assessment and if students opted for the apprenticeship and diploma qualification would it be recognizable at university. </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers also stated that the change will give students more independent insight to what career they want to progress to </li></ul>
  14. 14. 6b. Views From Students <ul><li>The views I received from students studying at Moat Community college (Ages 14-16 years), did not like the idea of being in education above 16 years and commented that they would like to have the option what they want to with their life when they leave education at 16. </li></ul><ul><li>On the other hand, there were some students that stated they would welcome the change in the curriculum, but they should be an incentive for them to stay on education till 19. </li></ul><ul><li>For instance pay them to stay on education, provide them with a variety of subject areas that will interest them. </li></ul><ul><li>Less examination and theoretical work and more concentration on practical and project work. </li></ul>
