LINGUA DELLA PUBBLICAZIONE:

DESCRIZIONE DEI CONTENUTI:

This document details the responses received by the Government to their consultations on the Green Paper proposals to extend the age range for compulsory education up to 18 years old.

473 written responses were received from a wide range of groups and individuals and these views, together with views from other sources e.g. focus groups, regional conferences etc. were used to produce a bill to parliament which aimed to:

'Raise the minimum age at which young people can leave education or training and bring in the legislative changes needed to implement key elements of the Leitch Review into the UKs long term skills needs'

This bill forms one of the main strategies employed in England to combat early school leavers and to stop young people becoming NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training) after the age of 16

COMMENTO SULLA PUBBLICAZIONE:

I found this a fascinating summary of the consultation process and results leading to far reaching legislation which will eventually affect all young people in England.
