Posted by Prymface on Friday, March 23, 2012,

(81 young mums have completed the survey so far. See previous post for more info!)

Posted by Prymface on Sunday, February 5, 2012,
Ok, its a mouthful I know - but stick with me here.

The DfE have launched a consultation, in view of raising the participation age to 17 in 2013 and 18 in 2015, where they are asking what should constitute 'full time'.
