Raising Participation Age (RPA) - Year 12
From September 2013 all young people will be under a duty to participate in education or training until the end of the academic year in which they turn 17. From September 2015 this will rise to their 18th birthday.
When the participation age increases, young people will need to continue to study or train in one of three routes.
