Mike Baker investigates the coalition government's policy on streamlining the National Curriculum, and what this means for secondary schools.
Chris Husbands, from the Institute of Education's Department of Learning, Curriculum and Communication, explains how secondary schools could have greater freedom in exam choices and qualifications.
This includes implementing International GCSEs (IGCSEs) which have now been approved by Ofqual for use in UK state schools.
Mike visits Parkside Community School, Cambridge, who plan to introduce the IGCSE under the new government proposals.
