The participation age has been raised so that all young people in England are now required to continue in education or training until their eighteenth birthday.
Young people have a choice about how they continue in education or training post-16, which could be through:
- full-time study in a school, college or with a training provider
- full-time work or volunteering (20 hours or more) combined with regulated part-time education or training (about one day per week)
- an apprenticeship or traineeship
