16- and 17-year olds' participation in learning

Why are we doing this?

Croydon Council, along with all English Local Authorities, has a legal duty to encourage, enable or assist 16- and 17- year olds to participate in learning. The council must report on young people's participation to the Department for Education on a regular basis.

What do we want to know?

The Post 16 Participation and NEET Team obtains information from a wide variety of sources on participation and offers, and this survey is an additional method to allow young people (or their parent/carer) to directly contact the Post 16 Participation and NEET Teamwith information on what they are doing, their future plans or any support needs they may have.

There are a series of questions to get confirmation from young people on their current activity (sixth form, college, apprenticeship, etc.), their future plans and offers and it also asks if they need additional support and what barriers they face in participating.
