Key take aways

Education can happen in many different ways. As home educators, the families get to decide what kind of education a child needs, and what kind of education they want to provide.
You don't need to be in the UK to do GCSEs and IGCSEs, which are running on the British curriculum. You can be based anywhere in the world!
There are several private exam centres all over the UK and the world that provide examinations for private candidates.
