Staying in Education
Most young people in Southwark move on to education in a sixth form or further education college each year in the September after they turn 16; or they may start an apprenticeship or other employment with training. All school leavers must stay in some type of education or training until they're 18 years old.
Some 16 and 17 year old young people may find themselves out of education, and if so we're here to help. Our Post 16 service works with these individuals to make sure they're offered advice and guidance to support them back into education.
We work closely with colleges and advice/support agencies to find the right support for each young person to help them move forward with their life and career goals. This can include exploring courses, apprenticeships and traineeships based on each individual’s starting point.
