14−19 education and training

We aim to provide world class educational opportunities for all young people to help them achieve success.


We have a duty to obtain enough appropriate education and training opportunities to meet the reasonable needs of all young people aged 14-19 across Derbyshire.

This includes:

  • young people aged 14-16 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/or 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.
