You're expected to stay in a form of education or training until you're 18. This can include employment with training, such as an apprenticeship.
This is so you can gain the qualifications you need to succeed in your chosen career.
We can give you advice and guidance about your options.
We want you to succeed so we'll ask you how you're doing, and we'll record this in your personal education plan (PEP), your pathway plan, or both. We'll be ready to celebrate your achievements with you.
Within the 16+ Service our aspirations officer can help with finding a job, a college or university course or training opportunities. Contact your personal adviser (PA) or the duty email if you would like them to contact you to discuss your options.
