Parent information

All young people are required to continue in education or training until their 18th birthday. This doesn’t have to mean staying in school. Students can choose to study or train in any of the following ways:

  • Stay on full-time in a school, college or with a training provider (many young people also do a part time job alongside this).
  • Work or volunteer full-time, together with part-time accredited education or training.
  • Take up an apprenticeship or traineeship.
