Our vision is to transform 11-19(25) learning and support in Leeds so that every young person is happy and confident, with the knowledge and skills they need for life and work.
We want to help young people make positive choices from a dynamic, varied and accessible curriculum. We want them to be engaged by, and committed to a personalised programme of learning that will meet their needs, build their aspirations and lead to a successful and happy future.
The Raising of the Participation Age means that young people will have to remain in learning in learning up to the age of 18.
From September 2013 young people will have to remain in some form of learning until the end of the academic year in which they turn 17 and from September 2015 young people will have to remain in some of learning until they are age 18. Young people will not necessarily remain at school, they may access learning at a college or training provider or take part in recognised training if they enter employment, such as an apprenticeship.
This means that young people in the current year 9 will have to remain in learning for a year after they complete Year 11 and young people in the current year 8, or younger, will have to remain in learning until they are 18.
We are planning provision and support to ensure that all young people in Leeds have suitable opportunities to remain in learning. Details of the learning opportunities available in Leeds for young people are available at www.leedspathways.org.uk. Young people and parents / carers can use the site to explore the different options that are available to young people after they complete Year 11, including information about apprenticeship opportunities for young people wishing to enter employment.
This website has been developed to help support this vision by enabling everyone to keep up to date with the rapidly changing developments around 11-19(25) learning and support.
The aim is to provide a gateway to all the latest news, information and good practice for staff, learners, parents / carers, governors and anyone else interested in 11-19(25).
The other source of information about 11-19 delivery and developments is the Leeds 11-19 (25) Learning and Support Plan (formerly the 14-19 Education Plan). This is the part of the city’s Children and Young People’s Plan that focuses on 11-19 (25) learning and support.
