BOOSTING OPPORTUNITIES BEYOND THE CLASSROOM
The Government is providing the first 2000 places for our Youth Guarantee in 2010. The Youth Guarantee will allow 16- and 17-year-olds to study for school-level qualifications at polytechs, institutes of technology, wananga, or private training establishments. It will give students who are disengaged at school the chance to continue learning in a non-school setting and get the skills they need.
