Don't blame yourself, you're only the facilitator.

Drop-out students who treat your classes as occasional drop-in centres.

Not to be confused with proper holidays or a normal working day.

Focused:

Probably on your next holiday.

Formal assessment:

Marking you really really don't want to do.

Foundation programme:

Dumbing up.

Franchised courses:

The Big Idea, er, went that-a-way.

Franchising contracts:

From toilets and Toblerones to teaching, they can always get it wholesale.

Where the twain meet.

Drowning, not waving.

Funding methodology:

The Klingon takeover is nearly complete.

The first cut isn't the deepest.

Scary monsters.
