The National Extension College, through online distance learning and educational charity, has supported and continues to support a diverse range of students. Although the majority remains adults who wish to return to education, in recent years we have also seen a steady rise in home educating families using our service. Still, within this group too, their backgrounds and reasons for using NEC vary. It may be they enrol with us in order to guarantee an exam place for their child. Some may take all their GCSEs and A levels with us, while others only take one or two subjects.
With all that has been going on lately in Westminster, you would be forgiven if this story had passed you by. However due to the enormity of its potential impact - particularly in the current climate of Brexit uncertainty - NEC did not want it to go by without comment.
