  1. As far as I'm aware, all RBS MA boys travel to London, and there aren't any mixed MA classes at any centre ....
  2. This article is relevant here: https://www.theguardian.com/education/2020/jun/15/2m-children-in-uk-have-done-almost-no-school-work-in-lockdown
  3. I didn't notice that .... or the "oversolits" typo either!!! πŸ˜‰
  4. Sorry!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  5. Personally, I'd be very happy never to see oversplits .... for me, they fall into the same category as eg being able to pop your eyeballs out of their sockets! When I watch someone dancing, I really don't want to be grossed out by contortionist tricks .... https://www.irishnews.com/magazine/daily/2017/06/28/news/a-woman-who-can-pop-her-eyes-out-of-her-head-has-answered-the-internet-s-questions-1070147/
  6. I was frustrated for ages too!! The first time the heart stayed in place was a major event - I'm not sure my family appreciated my delight ....! Anyway - happy to have been able to help πŸ™‚ x
  7. I had that problem too! Eventually, I realised you have to click on the heart twice - once, to make it jump up; a second time, to confirm that you like the post. Hope that helps! X
  8. So it's like saying .... there are loads of painters in the UK, but we've got a chapel ceiling to paint and we want Leonardo Da Vinci to do it ... and there's a shortage of Da Vinci's in the UK
  9. I agree .... that's what the article is saying. And it's precisely that reason that's the annoying part of it all - why not just be honest and make an immigration rule that says, "Creative industries are exempt under the same terms as those on the shortage list because they require freedom to attract worldwide talent" ...?!
  10. Thanks for the link πŸ™‚ From the article: "He added: β€œIt’s not really a shortage; it’s about talent.”" - I wish people would just be honest about this instead of spinning it as a shortage. It's the cover-up that's infuriating, not the search for worldwide talent.
  11. Ah. Then yes, questions need to be directed there then.
  12. I think it's the disingenuity here that is so maddening. If the inclusion of Classical Ballet dancers on the list of jobs requiring immigration is purely to allow dancers from other countries to continue to be employed in the UK when they otherwise would fail to meet the salary or points-based threshold, then it is wrong for the government to hide this behind the implication that there is a shortage of classical ballet dancers in the UK.
  13. From my own perspective, individual stories and experiences do indeed help when I am asking for information to address a personal, specific situation. I wouldn't like to assume that isn't the case for anybody else asking questions also .....
