Raising Expectations: Staying in Education and Training Post-16
- Department for Education and Skills (DfES)
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
It is estimated that 11 percent of 16 to 18-year-olds in England are currently not in education, training or work. This Green Paper from the Department for Education and Skills examines the case for raising the school leaving age in England to 18 by 2013. The move is designed to address the perceived deficit of basic skills and employment-related skills.
Proposals include requiring participation for 16 to 18-year-olds in either employment, workplace training or further education, specifically:
all young people should participate in education or training until their 18th birthday;
participation could be at school, in a college, in work-based learning, or in accredited training provided by an employer;
in order to count as participating, young people would be required to work towards accredited qualifications; and
participation should be full time for young people not in employment for a significant part of the week, and part time for those working more than 20 hours a week.
