Details of the September Guarantee, which requires local authorities to find suitable education and training places for 16- to 17-year-olds.
Local authorities have a statutory duty to provide education and training to all 16- and 17-year-olds and to support young people to find a suitable place. The September Guarantee helps local authorities to fulfil these duties, working with their partners - particularly schools and colleges - to agree how the process will work in their local area.
The offer should be appropriate to the young person’s needs and may be in a school, college or in work-based learning, or be for part-time education where the young person is combining education with full-time employment or voluntary work.
These ‘September Guarantee’ documents provide figures for the proportion of young people receiving an offer of education or training in each local authority area from 2010 to 2013.
