    1. 1. NSLA– Investigating Alternative Curriculum Pathways<br />SDD Term 3 2011<br />(School Identifications have been removed)<br />Liz Hemmings<br />New School Leaving Age Coordinator<br />Western Sydney<br />
    2. 2. NSW NSLA Policy<br />A child who has completed year 10 and is below the age of 17 years must continue his or her schooling unless he or she participates on a full-time basis in:<br />approved education training, or<br />paid work or a combination of approved education or training and paid work (the child must be above 15 years to be in employment). <br />Parents of a child who is subject to these new provisions can be prosecuted if their child does not satisfy this requirement.<br />
    3. 3. Why have states introduced later school leaving ages?<br />“There is compelling Australian and international research which highlights the enhanced life choices and outcomes for people who have completed higher levels of education and training. The research demonstrates that early school leavers are two and a half times more likely to be unemployed, earn lower wages and have poorer quality of life outcomes.” <br />Excerpt from preamble of Raising the School Age by Trevor Fletcher, July 2009.<br />
