Education and training for 16+ year olds
It is now the law for 16 year olds leaving school to participate in further education or training until they are 18. There are two main options for 16 year olds:
- to study full-time in a school, college or with a training provider
- to get into full-time employment or volunteering (more than 20 hours a week) but this must be combined with part-time study or training

College is not for everyone and for this reason there are many other training providers in Worcestershire that can offer education for over 16s. Take a look at the following websites to see what else Worcestershire offers.
