Raising of the Participation Age
All young people are required to remain in education or training until their 18th birthday. This does not have to mean staying in school.
Students can choose to study or train in any of the following ways:
- Stay on full-time in a school, college or with a training provider (many young people also do a part time job alongside this).
- Take up an apprenticeship or traineeship.
- Work or volunteer full-time, together with part-time accredited education or training.
Parents can make an appointment along with their child by contacting Mrs Helen Parks, Careers Adviser, firstname.lastname@example.org
