I HE in the Manchester area and there are loads and loads of groups. How old is your dc and what are their likes? There’s a group for everything! From enrichment (history, geography, maths, English and Latin) to rock climbing.

Hello there - based in Tameside

I have posted a thread in home ed about A-level German as a private candidate. Any chance any of you could help or be an utter hero and ask on FB for me please? (I am not on FB but guess I could stop being a dinosaur wink if no-one knows on here)

Cannot afford 13k per year fees for private college
Am a trained Mfl teacher myself but PGCE 11-16
DD is bilingual - lived in Germany 12 years
State sixth form college I am looking at do Spanish not German

If I understand correctly, I could enter DD for German A-level as a private candidate and it would cost 250 pounds?

How do I find a test centre that accommodates this or can all schools/colleges act as a centre, even if they do not teach the subject?
If home educating her to A-level, is it as simple as looking at the exam boards, picking one, reading the syllabus and covering the texts?
Given she is bilingual, would I be better off trying to do this in one year rather than two?
Any idea how the orals/aurals would be conducted - would the test centre fee accommodate all the components?

Any help or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance x

Thanks all, FB was the best online community.
Appears to be a flourishing Home Ed community across Manc to Bury smile
Thank you Jilted and idrill for the direction
Ps thanks Abby for your kind post
Humboldthny - we fell into it by chance (bad situation with schooling) and it’s going really well for our child - though was incredibly daunting at first, take baby steps and you begin to get some rhythm and structure to suit your own family, hope this helps. Feel free to message me, we are just beginning ourselves smile

Following....may be moving to the Manchester/Warrington area from the US and it’s looking like HE may be the only option for our daughter due to the way the UK system does admissions.

Hi, I'm a fellow Manc and I've heard there's a massive HE community round here.
It's something I am considering. I'll have a dig around on FB and get back to you.

Your best bet is Facebook. There are loads of home educating groups on there.

Hi all! Our family has recently decided to go home educate our child, I am looking for any online groups for the Manchester and Bury? If anyone could link me up I’d be really grateful. I have been made a aware of Yahoo groups?

Thanks very much
