We petition the government not to repeal the statutory entitlement for work-related learning in Key Stage 4

Additional Information

Section 85 of the Education Act 2002 as amended by the Education (Amendment of the Curriculum Requirements for Fourth Key Stage) (England) Order 2003 requires work-related learning to be provided as part of the Key Stage 4 curriculum in England. Work-related learning is defined as: ‘planned activity designed to use the context of work to develop knowledge, skills and understanding useful in work, including learning through the experience of work, learning about work and working practices, and learning the skills for work’.
Work-related learning allows young people to see how knowledge learned at school is used at work, develops their employability skills, and helps them find out about jobs and careers. This should be seen as a vital element of every young person’s education, and should remain a statutory part of the Key Stage 4 curriculum.
