Support for education to 18 – latest research

14 – 19
Skills for Life Network

‘Research carried out for the Department for Education and Skills indicates that there is widespread support for the idea of young people remaining in education or training until they are 18. The survey of 850 adults (16+) in England found that nine out of ten agreed, at least to some extent, that ‘it is a good idea for teenagers to remain in education or a form of work-based training such as an apprenticeship up to the age of 18’ and that two thirds feel that this should be made a legal requirement. Support for compulsory education or training to the age of 18 was strongest amongst the oldest age groups (55+).

A Green paper outlining proposals around these issues will be published shortly and will be followed by a period of consultation. Further information is available on the DfES website.’
