Raising of the Participation Age

Changes made by the Government mean that young people now have to continue learning post-16.

Raising of the Participation Age (RPA) does not mean young people have stay in school.

The following options are available for young people after Year 11:

- Full-time education (this can be school, college or home education)

- Work-based learning, such as an Apprenticeship.

- Part-time education or training if they are employed, self-employed or volunteering for more than 20 hours a week.

Key information to be aware of:

Young people now have to continue in education until at least their 18th Birthday; they should start planning ahead from Year 9 onwards to make sure that they are aware of the options that are available to them - this will help them make informed choices that will impact their long-term career prospects.

What are the benefits?

Young people who continue education post-16 are more likely to:

- Continue to further and higher levels of education

- Receive the skills, qualifications, knowledge and experience to improve future prospects - leading to an improved quality of life.

- Avoid long periods of unemployment
