Can someone explain the bellow act. What students will need to stay until the age of 17? are these students starting secondary education in 2013, or is this everyone that will be in education in 2013?
Also are we talking academic year, or calendar year? as saying 2013, could potentially mean, the Sept. 2013 class, or the June 2013 class.
"The Education and Skills Act 2008 increased the minimum age at which young people in England can leave learning. This requires them to continue in education or training to the age of 17 from 2013 and to 18 from 2015. Young people will be able to choose whether to stay in full-time education, undertake work-based learning such as an Apprenticeship, or part-time education or training if they are employed, self-employed or volunteering for more than 20 hours per week."
