Staying in education or training until you are 18.

Don't forget that you now have to stay in some form of education or training until you are at least 18.

This doesn't mean that you have to stay on at school for an extra two years, but does mean that you will need to think carefully about your choices after Year 11.

At 16 you can choose to continue your learning at sixth form or college, get an apprenticeship or traineeship or get a job with training.
