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.

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.

Guidance: Somebody knows the way ahead.
