Raising the Participation Age (RPA)
•
RPA comes into effect from Summer 2013
•
The Government has changed the law to increase the age at which you
are required to participate in education or training
•
This does not necessarily mean you have to stay on at school after
Year 11 if you don’t want to, your choices include:
– Full-time education, such as school or college;
– Apprenticeship;
– Part-time education or training if you are employed, self employed or volunteering
for 20 hours or more a week.

What is an Apprenticeship?
•
Apprenticeships are frameworks of nationally recognised qualifications
that offer a mixture of work based training and education.
•
An apprentice:
–
Is an employee earning a wage
–
Works alongside experienced staff to gain job specific skills.
–
Receives training to work towards the qualifications in their Apprenticeship
framework
–
Training can be undertaken on a day release basis or be delivered on-site by a
college or a private training provider.

Apprenticeship Overview
• Apprenticeships can take between 1-4 years to complete depending on
the level of Apprenticeship, the apprentices’ ability and the sector.
• All apprentices must be employed for a minimum of 30 hours a week,
although a minimum of 16 hours can be agreed in some
circumstances.
• 16-18 year old training is fully funded by the government. Employers
only pay their salary. An apprentice will be given time off for study for
the duration of the Apprenticeship.

1,200 job roles.

Some Real Life Stories
National Apprenticeship Service
“The most enjoyable part of the Apprenticeship for me was the practical
element of the course, and it was fantastic that I could gain a qualification
whilst doing something I really enjoyed and earning a wage at the same
time.” Kirsten Moran (Plumber)
“I tried a “traditional” education path but conventional university studies
didn't suit or excite me. Doing an Apprenticeship in hairdressing has been
hard work but it has helped me do something that genuinely interests me.”
Jignesh Madhavji (Hairdresser)
"College has been good and it has really helped being on site during the
week as well. I plan to build up my experience with the firm and hopefully
work my way up it.“ Ben Howell (Painter & Decorator)
“My Apprenticeship has made my confidence soar. Before I started I had
nothing to show for myself. I now understand that I can complete a highstandard of work and achieve qualifications to really help me get on in life.”
Claire Harrison (Team Leading)
