We have a duty to obtain enough appropriate education and training opportunities to meet the reasonable needs of all young people aged 14 to 19 across Derbyshire.
- young people aged 14 to 16 of compulsory school age
- young people over compulsory school age but under 19
- those who are aged 19 to 25 with a learning difficulty and disability
- young people subject to youth detention
To decide what education or training is right for our young people, we take into account the quality of that education and training, and we will challenge where this is poor or inadequate.
We work with schools, colleges, training providers and partner agencies.
