Careers Information

Did you know that if you were born on or after 1 September 1997, you must stay in some form of education or training until your 18th birthday? You can do this in 1 of 3 ways

  1. Study full-time, e.g. at a school 6th form or college.
  2. Work and study for a qualification, e.g. take an Apprenticeship or Traineeship.
  3. Study part-time whilst you work for an employer, yourself or volunteer (for 20+ hours per week).

Whichever pathway you choose, you will need to achieve at least a grade 4 in GCSE Maths and English (this is equivalent to a Level 2 in Functional Skills Maths and English).
