#10 The Pandemic Converted Me

Why I Chose to Stick with Home Education

On this episode, you’ll hear from Dr. Catherine Steele, who chose UKVS during the pandemic.  As soon as her daughter (Hope) started, it became clear that home education suited her better that her previous traditional school, so she’s continued after lockdown.  Catherine actually works in the traditional education system herself, and was very nervous about the change to UK Virtual School for Hope.

Key take aways

Hope's school were supportive of the swap to home education, and if for what ever reason the switch over didn't work out, they agreed to keep her place open, should she want to return. 
Catherine felt security in knowing that UKVS were teaching a similar curriculum to Hope's previous school.  If she decided to return to traditional schooling in the future, she's now confident that Hope has been learning the same things as her peers.
Catherine's Father, who's involved as a Governor at a local school, and was always a big fan of traditional schooling, has had his eyes opened around the benefits of home schooling.  He works through course resources and videos with Hope and supports her with her homework.  This collaborative working and common interest has been amazing for their relationship.
