The DfE are currently consulting on their plans to raise the participation age (RPA). This will mean that young parents will be required to stay in education till they are 18. To respond to this consultation it would really help if you were able to tell me a bit about your experiences and your views on the best way to support young parents. For more information on how this will be used see http://prymface.yolasite.com/blog.php. Thank you!
