Raising the Participation Age

All young people in England are now required by law to remain in education or training until their 18th birthday.

  • Study full-time in a sixth form, college or training provider
  • Be employed or volunteer full-time and study part-time
  • Do an apprenticeship, traineeship or supported internship
