From April 2010, responsibility for securing sufficient education and training provision for all young people, including those aged 16-19, and 19-25 year olds being assessed for a learning difficulty and/or disability as well as juveniles in custody, will pass from the Learning and Skills Council (LSCi) to local authorities.

In addition, the Young People’s Learning Agency (YPLA) will be established as a Non-Departmental Public Body (NDPB) to support local authorities discharge their planning and commissioning functions and to ensure funding and budgetary control within the system.
