Because of RPA (raising the participation age) legislation, students have to do some sort of learning.

Students may choose to:

  • Stay at School, go to a College or Sixth Form and study full time courses
  • Get a job and take a work related course alongside it such as an OCR National, BTEC, City and Guilds or other accredited course
  • Be Self Employed but you will also need to do some accredited learning or training course
