Are you ready for September?

All children need to stay in learning until age 18 - where are you heading this summer

Most young people 16+ know where they are going to study this September, but if you're still making plans, it's time to take action

Everyone needs to stay in learning until age 18. Most know where they are going this September already. But if you're still deciding, there are options to choose from and support is available.

Time to take action

If these options aren't right for you, there are other options, including part-time and flexible learning.

There are things you can do

If you don't have learning plans in place for September, there are steps you can take:

  1. Contact your local FE college to see what they can offer
