Learning Choices at 16 plus

You can leave school on the last Friday in June if you’ll be 16 by the end of the summer holidays.

You must then do one of the following until you’re 18:

  • Stay in full-time education, for example at School, College or Alternative Provision
  • Start an apprenticeship or traineeship (work-based learning)
  • Spend 20 hours or more a week working or volunteering, while in part-time education or training.
