Going to College or Higher Education
When you leave school you don’t have to stop learning, you can go to college or university
If you’re not sure what you want to do when you leave school speak to the careers advisor at your school or a youth advisor, they’ll be able to tell you about what choices you have and how to get started.
It’s best to do this before you leave school so that you have lots of time to get ready. If you have an Education, Health & Care plan (EHCP) you might need to start planning even sooner so that we have time to update it ready for your new academic year.
There are lots of different courses you can take at college or university, you can start training for your career or take classes in skills that will help you manage your life on your own.
