We believe terms should be scrapped or shortened. Semesters should stretch through the summer holidays, while teachers and students should be able to choose when they study. Summer course save on heating bills and result in a reduced carbon footprint. Being able to tailor courses is motivating and parents save money by taking holidays at off-peak times.
The DfES is peculiarly silent on this and Unions are not known for their love of change. But why not?
