Education in England

Education in England

The education system in the UK is one of the most comprehensive ever. Being the leading super power in the world for a very long period of time, before the US took over, Britain’s educational pattern was superior and was followed by many countries around the world including the Indian Subcontinent.

Different stages

The various stages of education in the UK are categorized into basic education, secondary education, further education and higher education. Children are expected to learn their primary and secondary education around 5 to 16 years.

This system has 4 key stages. Stage one education is generally between 5-7 years, second stage is between 7-11 years, stage three is between 11-14 years and stage four is between 14 and 16 years. Stage one and two are treated by primary schools while three and four are treated by secondary schools.

Each student is evaluated based on their performance at the end of this stage. The most important evaluation is that at that time, a student completes his high school. After this stage, at the age of 16, a student is allowed to choose further education or begin his work.

After completing GCSE, UK students have several options to choose from where students complete their A-levels. A British student who plans to take tertiary education at a college or university must complete further education before they proceed to their A level, BTEC qualifications, GNVQ and others (which are widely referred to as Vocational programs).

With 100 universities offering various degree programs for UK and overseas students, the country offers great opportunities both for and after education. Most courses in the UK run for three years while today sandwich courses that last for four years are increasingly popular. Professional degrees such as medicine, law and veterinary medicine can take up to …

Education Is Important

Education Is Important

When I was a young child my parents used to tell me to study hard. They would say how important it is to score good grades in exams so that in the future you can get a good job and also earn a decent salary. So what happens was that me and my siblings would strive to at least be graduates. This was a proven fact – that the graduates would make a significant higher amount of money compared to the non graduates. Of course as with anything else in life there are exceptions. For example those entrepreneurs who have created a fortune from computer or internet related businesses. These include Bill Gates who is the founder of Microsoft and Mark Zuckerberg who created Facebook. These people did not need college degrees to make money because they had good ideas as well as the necessary skills that empowered them to create fantastic businesses.

However for the rest of us, the degree would serve as the basic passport for us to get inside a company. Notice the difference here? The people without degrees start up a new company based on their own competency, but for the rest of us, we still need the degree as a stepping stone to get a job. This is the big difference between the employed and the entrepreneurs. Unless you can be someone like Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg, I think it is still better that you take the path that most people take and get yourself a good education.

So it really is a big question mark over when education plays an important role. When we are young, it would be difficult to know what we want to do in the future. Thing may get clearer as time passes, that is why there are some …
