Learning Routes

It’s been a while since you were at school and there’s been a lot of changes.

Young people in England now have to stay in education or training until they are 18 years old.

But this doesn’t necessarily mean staying at school. Your child needs to decide on the best route for them and there are lots of options. Qualifications come in different types and levels.

Navigating your family through these decisions can be difficult, but there's lots of information to help.

Gaining knowledge and skills that are relevant to Staffordshire's growing industries will not only help your children to get a good job, it will also help attract new employers and new industries to the county.
