Post 16 Education, Apprenticeships, Traineeships or Supported Internships

Post 16 Education, Apprenticeships, Traineeships or Supported Internships

Alongside introducing reforms to improve the quality of post-16 education and training, the government has raised the participation age (RPA) so that all young people in England are now required to continue in education or training for longer.

The Raising of the Participation Age does not necessarily mean staying in school; you have a choice about how you continue in education or training post-16. This could be through:

  • full-time study in a school, college or with a training provider;
  • full-time work or volunteering (20 hours or more) combined with part-time education or training; or
  • apprenticeship or traineeship (more information available www.apprenticeships.org.uk (Apprenticeship/ traineeship courses are offered at South Essex College,  Southend Adult Community College and SEEVIC college)

In Southend on Sea there are many options for you to choose from Post 16.   Our local area encompasses;

There are also 16-19 academies, and vocational learning and training providers. The range of available study programmes is broad and includes AS/A-levels, vocational qualifications at all levels, apprenticeships, traineeships, supported internships and bespoke packages of learning
