Sweet FE

Gagging clause: Shut up or get out - and you're wrong about the vice-principal's solarium. It's for his wife's use too.

GCSEs: The real sub-degree work in FE.

General studies: Day-release trainees become renaissance people.

General Teaching Council: Someone to watch over you.

Globalisation: Don't worry - everywhere else is like this as well.

GNVQs: The good, the bad, the ugly?

Gold standard: Will anyone peg the A-level to the dollar?

Governors: The Klingon Empire's representatives on earth. Their mission: to flood the world with ring binders.

Grades: Boring meetings before the inspection and stress management workshops Growth: Go for it (but we'll penalise you if you do).

Growth cash: Now you see it, now you don't.

Guidance: Somebody knows the way ahead.
