Having worked with teenagers with anxiety, it is not uncommon to learn ,that the parents often display similar or other mental health or trauma related issues. Providing a wrap around service, as part of the education system for the child and parents could be a helpful solution. I managed a small school campus for kids with mental health and providing access to youth, social workers, and counsellors made a huge difference. Plus, providing the opportunity for parents to come in and just have conversation and develop realistic plans was so beneficial. It is my belief that what helped the kids, was the creation of a learning environment, that was calm, safe and offered a learning program that empowered the students and provided them with individualised support when "THEY" asked for it. If adults working in an educational setting, can create a safe and secure space, where there is transparency and predictability in the moods of the adults to begin with, wonderful transformations take place in the kids and for the parents.
Statistics is a very rosy tool indeed. I can only see more people doing standalone Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Engg and ICT courses and which is expected due to population growth as well as inflow of ambitious migrants who will do what ever it takes their child to a university. I see no STEM qualifications yet.
