In 2008 a law was passed that made important changes for all young people in England, whereby all young people have to stay on in education or training at least on a part time basis until they are 18 years old.

 

This means that young people are required to participate in education or training through either:

 

  • Full time education or training, including school, college, and home education. 
  • Work based learning, such as an apprenticeship, or 
  • Part time education or training or volunteering more than 20 hours a week. 

 

When making the decision you need to consider the following:

 

  • What career you want to do in the future – some jobs need you to choose certain routes to get into them
  • Your predicted grades
  • How you want to learn – you might enjoy school, and might like to continue; you might prefer more hands-on ways of doing things, so you might want to think about an apprenticeship.

 

Who can I go to for additional support?

 

Within school, Linde Carruthers (Ansbury Careers advisor) will be available to meet with all Year 11 students, who will be leaving the school in that academic year, to ensure that an appropriate post 16 destination is in place prior to leaving the school.
