Notwithstanding criticism of the examination orientation of the English education system, a ‘stage not age’ arrangement means students can be examined when scholastically ready, rather than being at the required examination age. These considerations are, however, incongruously out of step with the intent of futures-focussed learning, which is less focussed on assessment and more on skill and dispositional development. The CERI research of innovative learning environments found flexibility in regard to age cohorts, with preference given to grouping by stage of learning instead (2013).
