I am clear on what counts and doesn't count for a majority of things eg debate over child rights in after school club yes, in citizenship at school, no and if it's in paid employment or otherwise compulsory no. But what about things that fall a bit in between? Such as having to work (unpaid) for a family business, farm etc? In terms of what is leant there is something BUT it's not voluntary and is more of an obligation. One part of me wants to say that if they have learnt something new then I am happy to let them have it, but another part of me sees it as it just being an "oh can this fit, that bits done" with no real effort to go out and find a personal challenge . And I am against the "every little thing needs a badge/recognition" culture, which I don't want to affect my judgement!
