Want to leave school at 16? You can!
The government has increased the age to which all young people in England must continue in education or training to 18.
So, you have more options to consider. You can:
- Stay in full-time education at school or college
- Study/train part time if you are working/volunteering for 20 hours a week or more
- Start an apprenticeship
The point is, you don’t have to stay at school. You have options. To explore them all, come and talk to us.
