An interesting article explaining that, despite the Coalition Government scrapping the Education Maintenance Allowance in 2010, Labour is expected to include its restoration in its election manifesto.

The Labour Party is expected to make bringing back the Education Maintenance Allowance a manifesto pledge.

As the figures demonstrate, the allowance can assist young people and support them to stay in education and continue to focus on studying, improving participation and attainment among 16-18-year-olds.
