Australia is a world-famous immigrant country, and many people choose to immigrate to Australia every year. So for families with children, what kind of education can children enjoy in Australia? This article will tell you!
Personalized Primary and Secondary Education
The education quality of Australian primary and secondary schools ranks among the top in the world, and some authoritative assessment results such as the OECD International Student Assessment Program (PISA) and other global independent assessment results show that Australian primary and secondary schools are in reading, science and education. Australian education levels in certain subjects, such as mathematics, are among the best in the world. This should be attributed to Australia’s well-developed primary and secondary education system and strict education quality standards.
Primary and secondary education in Australia is individualized education. The school will formulate a learning plan according to the characteristics of each student. For students who study well, the school will arrange for him to take college courses and get college credits. For students with relatively poor grades, the school will also formulate corresponding plans, and ask teachers to make up for their learning deficiencies. School education is not cookie-cutter, so that students’ abilities can be maximized.
The Australian primary and secondary education quality supervision system is very strict. Regardless of the Australian federal government or the state government, there is an education quality supervision system and an education quality assurance framework to ensure that the quality of each primary and secondary school meets the standards.
Plan ahead for the future
Primary and secondary education in Australia includes pre-school, preparatory classes (or kindergartens), primary, junior high and high school education, and students are educated in schools for 13 years (including 1-year preparatory classes). Each state in Australia has its own high school curriculum system and issues a high school diploma, but this does not affect students’ freedom to apply for any university in Australia, because the high school scores of all graduates will eventually be converted into a nationally unified Australian higher education admissions ranking. Universities and institutions of higher education use this ranking as the basis for admissions of freshmen.
In addition, the support services provided to students in Australian schools are very distinctive. Basically, all schools will have consultant teachers for future planning. These planning teachers will have one-on-one conversations with each student from grade 10 onwards and make personal plans for students’ future employment or further studies.
Internationally recognised high school curriculum
Australian high schools provide a variety of courses and methods for students to choose from. After 11 years of study, in addition to entering grade 12, students can also choose the pre-university courses of famous Australian schools and enter excellent universities.
High school students can choose from diploma courses, college preparatory courses. At the same time, Australian high school graduates can also apply to universities in the UK, the US, Canada and other countries around the world, including Yale, Stanford, Oxford, Cambridge and other world-renowned schools.
Encourage participation in vocational education
The industry-led Australian vocational education and training system has become a benchmark and model for the world to follow. The Australian vocational education and training system focuses on meeting the needs of industrial development, providing high-quality training, and ensuring that what you use is what you learn. These advantages have been highly recognized by the World Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, UNESCO and the International Labour Organization.
A major feature of the Australian education system is that it encourages and attaches great importance to vocational education, and at the same time encourages students to undertake vocational education in system design. Compared with the reality that there are not many vocational education schools in the United Kingdom and the United States, there are many vocational education schools in Australia, and they have a very long history.
For students whose grades do not meet the undergraduate requirements, they can also choose to attend vocational training schools. In fact, Australian vocational education institutions have close ties with universities and can provide students with more and more opportunities for further studies.
Many vocational education graduates have obtained the recognition of their academic qualifications through the agreement between the school and the university, and obtained credit exemption or exemption of specific subjects when they progressed to the relevant university degree program.
The purpose of Australian education is to cultivate talents with independent skills in the 21st century, including the ability to communicate with others, the ability to solve problems independently, the ability of teamwork, critical thinking, etc., so that students can face society independently in the future.
