You are spot on, we should start "The Plastic fantastic fighters club". I am glad to find someone who has witnessed the same. I have interviewed too many learners who's difficulties have gone undetected this includes a learner who could not write his own name, he progressed from Level One Hairdressing to Level Three and is currently carving a name for himself in competition work. I caught up with him recently at a trade show and he said "without college, I would never enter competitions because how else would I complete the competition application form. Do not get me started on "GCSEs grades" it's half term and I am trying to maintain a "zen like state". I am tutoring a learner who reported that she had spent the last four years of secondary school back of class, hiding behind her hair so she did not have to "read aloud". Reason for this she cannot read and she has a C Grade English? I was at a training course recently and part of the homework was to produce a set of trigger cards. The stickers and cards were given out all we had to do was stick the things on easy . Four of the primary teachers complained about the time it would take!
