Public spending on education was 3.5% of GDP in 2012.
The National Minimum Curriculum, spanning ages 5–16, came into force in October 2000. It established goals and principles within which every school is empowered to design its own teaching programmes. The Minimum Curriculum was intended to provide an educational experience which prepares students for the world of work, where change is a fact of life.
