    Qualifications are an increasingly important part of getting a job - so it's never been more important to work hard and get the grades.

    I understand the sentiment though - and getting students outside of the classroom can provide invaluable education opportunities - trouble is, with the blame culture of our society of late, and reams of risk management forms to fill in, teachers are more and more reluctant to take students out

    The over-worked mantra you've artfully discussed in this post is "Life-long learning". Teachers really are aware that part of the job they do is invest their charges with a love of learning, and to give them the skills to carry on learning. In fact, it's the best students who do just that: read around the syllabus/subject, rather than limit themselves to the course content.
