I taught in a school in Wales that had a transition programme with local primary schools. They started a project in 6th class... #edchatie

Actually Transition Year was supposed to be in First year not 4th #edchatie Some school is trying it in first year I think

... finished in first year. It was a good ice breaker for the students and they could talk about the work they had done &compare #edchatie

@johnmayo #edchatie I am inclined to think not, very little transfer of information

#edchatie There is a school in Limerick that more or less treats first year as a transition year. Makes more sense to me.

#edchatie Would love to see a 'foundation' first year where students get a taste of every option. Too often they end up with wrong choice

I think the Education Passport is going to be a help #edchatie
