The government has increased the age to which all young people in England must continue in education or training, requiring them to continue until the end of the academic year in which they turn 17 from and until their 18th birthday.

This does not necessarily mean staying in school; young people have a choice about how they continue in education or training post-16, which could be through the following routes:

Academic (A levels in 6th form)

Vocational (Diploma at college or other local training provider)

Work-based (Apprenticeship or other employment with training)

All Year 11 students will be invited for a careers interview with an impartial, qualified Careers Guidance Counsellor. This is a chance for them to discuss their aspirations, to find out about a range of opportunities and to make decisions that are right for their future. Each student will be provided with an action plan outlining a summary of the discussion and how to move the plan forward.
