Schools and education

School leavers

Leaving school is a major part of growing up. There are lots of potential paths for young people to take at this point in life, but deciding which of these is best for you can sometimes be difficult and confusing.

Thankfully, there are plenty of resources available to help you make your decision and we're providing links and resources to help young people make the crucial transition from education to employment.

Other online resources

Working with partners across the city (school sixth forms, colleges and support services) we have prepared a guide: Planning your future post-16 – a guide for parents, carers and young people, which gives information about the options available and important things to think about.
