Education in England

Education in England
The education system is divided into early years (ages 3–4), primary education (ages 4–11), secondary education (ages 11–18) and tertiary education (ages 18+). Higher education often begins with a three-year bachelor's degree. Postgraduate degrees include master's degrees, either taught or by research, and the doctorate, a research degree that usually takes at least three years. History of English education[edit] Until 1870 all schools were charitable or private institutions, but in that year the Elementary Education Act 1870 permitted local governments to complement the existing elementary schools, to fill up any gaps. Education to the age of 18[edit] State-funded schools[edit] St Barnabas Church of England Primary School, Oxford Since 1998, there have been six main types of maintained school in England:[16][17][18] In addition, 3 of the 15 City Technology Colleges established in the 1980s still remain, the rest having converted to academies. Independent schools[edit] Higher education[edit]

Further education Further education (often abbreviated FE) in the United Kingdom and Ireland, not dissimilar to continuing education in the United States, is a term used to refer to post-compulsory education (in addition to that received at secondary school), that is distinct from the higher education offered in universities. It may be at any level above compulsory secondary education, from basic skills training to higher vocational qualifications such as PGCE, NVQ, City and Guilds, BTEC, HNC, HND or Foundation Degree. A distinction is usually made between FE and higher education HE, an education at a higher level than secondary school, usually provided in distinct institutions such as universities. FE in the United Kingdom is usually a means to attain an intermediate or follow up qualification necessary to attend university, or begin a specific career path, e.g. Further education by country[edit] Australia[edit] United Kingdom[edit] England[edit] Northern Ireland[edit] Scotland[edit] Wales[edit] Ireland[edit]

Destination Data Students The Department for Education today published new data showing how many students progressed to further or higher education or training for each school, college and local authority in England. It is also the first time that the number and proportion of young people in a school, college and authority who attend Oxbridge or another Russell Group university is being published. The statistics - published as part of the Government’s transparency agenda - give parents and the public even greater information with which they can choose the right school or college for their child. In particular, today’s statistics, which relate to maintained schools, further education colleges and sixth form colleges, show what proportion and number of students were in: It is the latest step in the Department for Education’s pledge to open up a mass of previously unpublished statistics. Schools Minister Lord Hill said: He added: Headline statistics In the year after taking an A level or equivalent at Key Stage 5: Regions

Blog-Artikel: Schools in Britain There are several kinds of schools in Britain to choose from. Parents can either send their children to state schools, which are cheaper but they do not offer as high level of education as private sector or spend little fortunes on their little scholars sending them to some private, boarding schools, looking like more of mansions than school buildings. But no matter where the children educate, they follow the same pattern of schools they have to go through: preparatory school, senior school, 6th form or college, and finally polytechnics or university. All children in England start their education at 4 or 5, some even at 3 and go to preparatory school, to attend their lessons with year 1 group. The next kind of place where children are taught is senior school. However, those, who are more ambitious, go to 6th form or college. Finally, university or polytechnics education starts.

Studieren in England | Studium und Universität in England Im Vereinigten Königreich müssen jährlich Gebühren gezahlt werden. Die Höhe der Gebühren (Tuition Fees) hängt davon ab, ob es sich um Home Students, d. h. Briten bzw. Staatsangehörige aus EU-Ländern, oder Overseas Students/International Students, sonstige ausländische Studierende, handelt. Seit Dezember 2010 dürfen Hochschulen in England und Wales Studiengebühren bis maximal £ 9000 pro Jahr erheben. Dies stellt eine Verdreifachung der Gebühren dar, die 2006 beschlossen wurden. Anders sieht es in Schottland aus: Zwar wurden in England und Wales die Studiengebühren gerade angehoben, davon merken die Studierenden in Schottland allerdings nichts. Nach der Graduierung wird eine Zahlung gefordert von derzeit 2.200 £, die aber über das gesamte Studium betrachtet sehr wenig ist. Neben den Tuition Fees können zusätzliche, „anerkannte“ Gebühren für bestimmte Zwecke erhoben werden, oft auch College Fees genannt.

Britisches Bildungssystem: Hoffnungen zweiter Klasse Britisches Bildungssystem In den Problembezirken Großbritanniens sind Schulen oft schlecht ausgestattet, das soziale Umfeld schätzt Bildung nicht wert. Wer dort aufwächst, für den bleibt Oxford unerreicht. In einem Londoner Gemeindezentrum der Methodisten versammeln sich Jugendliche, um sich von den Krawallen zu distanzieren. LONDON taz | Ist das die perspektivlose Jugend Englands? Während Tottenham zur Normalität zurückkehrt und die Gerichte Londons mehr als tausend Jugendliche wegen der Krawalle angeklagt haben, beginnt in Großbritannien die Suche nach den Ursachen der sozialen Probleme. Tottenham ist unter den 5 Prozent der am meisten benachteiligten Viertel in England. Studiert zu haben ist in Tottenham keine Seltenheit. In Deutschland steht die Hauptschule in Verbindung mit sozialen Problemen. Selbst ein Uni-Abschluss ist nicht genug "Die kommen nicht auf die Topuniversitäten, denn deren Noten sind meistens einfach zu schlecht", sagt Matt Grist vom Thinktank Demos.
