Oldermum Posted March 16, 2013 Share Posted March 16, 2013 Just wondered on anyones views regardings International Students filling 6th form places. I heard comments from yr 11 students whether they are at vocational school or not saying how amazing a lot of the International students were at the final auditions. I was just wondering how and why if they are so amazing compared to british trained students - why they would want to come over here, and secondly would their countries training methods be permitted over here - would some of their techniques be assessed as abuse in this country and if so why are we as a country supporting such training methods. I may be completely wrong and I don't mean to offend, I know all our dc work extremely hard and have a lot of passion and love of dance but shouldn't we be standing up for our own to have places available in sixth form. Don't misunderstand me I'm not racist or saying talented international students shouldn't get any places at all after all Ballet companies are their to showcase the most talented dancers in the world. Just shouldn't they all be on a level playing field. My dd is at vocational school and we are both extremely happy with her training and would hope that she will still be there and hopefully gain a place to continue training as a 6th former - financial restraint from the goverment being addressed. Appreciate any views if if you think I'm completely wrong. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
