SubjectEducation -- Economic aspects
The problem in the Fazakerley area in Liverpool is the shortage of standalone Sixth Form Colleges operating under their own rules and in separate premises from the ones high schools are. The purpose of the study was to determine if the Fazakerley Sixth Form College, as designed in other areas of England, would be feasible in the area in assisting the government to meet the demand for this type of college. Moreover, if it would meet the needs of the inhabitants in order to feel secure to send their children to study there. Finally, how it would assist the present government to achieve the goals that has set for education which are higher grades across the board in A-level and BTEC exams. They set a target for this year which is to improve attendance, as they claim is a significant factor affecting the percentage of children who ultimately succeed in meeting their targets. The government believes that standalone Sixth Form colleges tend to have higher attendance rates in comparison to High Schools that incorporate Sixth Form in their premises.
