Since September 2015, young people have been under a duty to participate in education, employment or training via one of these primary routes:
- Study full-time in a school, college or with a training provider.
- Full-time work or volunteering combined with part-time education or training.
- An apprenticeship.
Benjamin Oppong, the Virtual School's Post 16 Education, Training and Employment Advisor works in collaboration with a number of professionals to ensure that young people in care are in education or training.
