Teenage girls will be offered a GCSE-level qualification in being a young parent.To be fair, it’s obvious that the UK isn’t going to win any prizes in the readin’, writin’ and ‘rithmatic stakes, so why not introduce something our underclass do excel at…?
Those who are 'considering becoming pregnant' or are so already will learn about caring for newborn babies, breastfeeding, family finances and how to deal with toddler tantrums.
Under the plan, Edexcel, the country's biggest exam board, will recognise teen parenting courses already coordinated by the National Community Learning Partnership.*sigh*
There is no lower age limit, and some girls who have been on the courses were just 12.
