Continuing in learning: Raising the Participation Age

The Government is raising the age at which young people need to continue in education or training. It isn’t about raising the school leaving age and it doesn’t mean young people can’t get a job. It’s all about continuing in learning, and you have lots of choice about how to do this in a way that suits you best. Find out more from our new website area called RPA - Raising the Participation Age, which tells you more about whether RPA affects you, why it is happening, what your options are, and where you can find out more. There’s a new downloadable factsheet available there too.
