Choices at 16
You’ve got your whole life ahead of you. And you could do anything with it. Exciting, right? Well…yeah. But also stressful. Particularly when there’s so many different paths you could take. And everyone thinks they know which one is best for you.
Maybe they’re right? Or maybe you’ve got other ideas? Either way, knowing your options
will help make sure you’re choosing what’s right for you.
That’s what this page is all about. Taking you through the options and helping you find the information you need to decide on your next step.
What are your choices after Year 11?
You can choose to:-
- Study full-time at sixth form or college or with another provider (further education)
- Start an apprenticeship or traineeship
- Work or volunteer full-time with part-time study or training
Don't forget that whatever choice you make you must stay in education or training until you are 18.
