Learning and working
We have introduced a range of innovative education programmes, including the Foundation Phase and the Welsh Baccalaureate. We are also working to get young people into work or training.
Core Aim 2
Core Aim 2 requires that every child and young person has access to a comprehensive range of education, training and learning opportunities, including the acquisition of essential personal and social skills.
Achieving at least a minimum level of educational attainment is critical to the happiness, success and wellbeing of individuals.
We are committed to ensuring that all children and young people have access to high quality education and training wherever they live, as well as a range of non-formal learning opportunities for 11-25 year olds.
Our objectives are that all children and young people should:
- engage in full-time education
- have any barriers to learning identified and removed
- reach their full potential
- continue in purposeful formal and informal education, training or employment to age 19
- achieve social and economic wellbeing.
