Make Your Future Happen

School leavers have to stay in learning until they are 18. This could be a full-time course or an apprenticeship or job with training.

If you have any additional needs or disabilities, talk to your school’s careers adviser/teacher about getting the support you need at your next stage.

Schools have lots of details and information about their sixth form courses on their websites. Most have a Sixth Form Information Evening early in the autumn term so check dates.


You will also find everything you need to know about college courses on college websites and most produce a prospectus – get one from your school’s careers room. Also, go to open days, colleges usually have at least one a term.
