College, sixth form and training

If you are a young person, aged 14 to 19, you need to think about your next steps. The choices you make will determine how you progress from school to further education or training and start work in your chosen career. 

You now have to stay in learning or training until you are 18 – you don’t need to stay in school, the important thing is that you continue to learn, through:

  • full time education in school or college
  • full time work with learning attached to it, like an apprenticeship
  • part time education if you are self-employed, volunteering or doing some other type of useful activity.
