The air up here ...

Been watching the maelstrom of education churn slowly on over the last few months. Sitting in what could be considered a slightly detached position, you can take the time to stop, think, sit back and consider what is taking place.

Flat panic maybe, but change for sure. Changes that are taking place in the 14-16 arena from September, will have a knock on effect within post-16 vocational education by 2014, by which time many qualifications validated under QCF will be up for their normal review, if it has not already started by then.

If, you are someone that is uncomfortable with change in education, now may be the time to carefully consider your nervous breakdown. Or, like many of us, accept that change is normal and think how you may direct change to ensure that it can only do good.

The problem is, in some things I do, I could see the early portents of this last summer. Having warned some souls, all I see is the 'same old' taking place with no preparation for the change that will come.

And it will.

Looks like one will have to catch the balls in mid flight. I don't particularly care for the organisations and those who work for them. But the students and our younger generation who will inherit this, now that's a different story.
