This change will give every young person the best chance to achieve and succeed because:  continuing in learning for longer brings benefits for individuals, the economy and society;  young people without qualifications are going to find it increasingly difficult to find and keep employment in future;  it will prevent the most disadvantaged, disaffected and vulnerable young people being disadvantaged, as is happening now, while participation post-16 is voluntary.
