Since September 2015, young people have been under a duty to participate in education, employment or training via one of these primary routes:
Young people aged 16-18 must have an up-to-date Post 16 Personal Education Plan in place to ensure that their aspirations are recorded & identified and that provisions are implemented to ensure that they are able to reach their destinations.
The Virtual School supports young people in care and Care Leavers to access suitable education and training up to the age of 25.
For more details, please contact Benjamin Oppong.

There is a range of information that can support children in care with decisions on what they can do after leaving school at 16.
