The Skills & Employability service is committed to supporting, promoting and delivering high quality services for secondary school aged children on behalf of Kent County Council. We do this in order to raise aspirations and equip young people with the skills they need to reach their full potential in adult life.
The Education People hold the strategic and operational responsibilities in Kent for the ‘Raising the Participation Age’ (RPA) duties placed on local authorities by the government.
- Promote effective participation in education and training of 16 and 17 year olds in their area with a view to ensuring that those young people fulfil the duty to participate in education or training.
- Make arrangements to identify 16 and 17 year olds who are not participating in education or training.
Our experienced and skilled team bring together all the required pieces that make this happen.
