Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department Raising of the Participation Age (RPA) What does it mean to you? Slide 2 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department What does RPA mean to you? RPA means that all young people will continue in education or employment with training to 17 from 2013 and to 18 from 2015. This means continuing until they have achieved level 3 or reach their 18 th birthday whichever comes first. Continuing in education and training until 18 does not necessarily mean staying on at school. Slide 3 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department What does RPA mean to you? At age 16, young people will be able to choose to undertake: full-time education, such as that offered in school or in college 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 per week Slide 4 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department Why RPA ? This change will give every young person the best chance to achieve and succeed because: continuing in learning for longer brings benefits for individuals, the economy and society; young people without qualifications are going to find it increasingly difficult to find and keep employment in future; it will prevent the most disadvantaged, disaffected and vulnerable young people being disadvantaged, as is happening now, while participation post-16 is voluntary.
