 Are you in Year 11?

Raising Participation Age legislation means that if you are in Year 11 now, you will have to continue in education or training until at least the end of the school year when you are 18.

This does not mean you must stay in school! You can choose from the following options:

  • full time education in college (or school)
  • an apprenticeship
  • get a job, be self-employed or volunteer for 20 hours or more per week – and receive part-time education or training leading to a qualification

Remember – staying in education and training has huge benefits, including increased earnings and better job prospects.
