Map O’ The Day #72 – The 14-19 Pathways


Today’s MOTD comes to use from the UK and is a flowchart of the decisions teenagers need to make in regards to their education (starting 2013).

At 14 the student is presented with a three tier choice of accelerated education, an ‘American’ high school path and a specialization path. Depending on the students decision they can at 16 stay on their current track or switch tracks to something that will match their goals better.

I like how the emphasis in this map is all about the choice periods and not the tracks of education because at every decision point all of the tracks merge.
