Bournemouth and Poole 14-19 Team

Making sure there are plenty of learning opportunities for young people aged 14 to 19

Everyone must be in education or training until their 18th birthday. So we make sure that there are plenty of learning opportunities available.

What we do

The 14-19 Team is made up of staff from Bournemouth and Poole councils. Working with schools, academies, colleges and work based training providers, we make sure there are the right courses available for young people after their GCSEs (aged 16+) and that these are locally available and of good quality.

Education and Employment with Training

There are plenty of learning opportunities in Bournemouth and Poole. There are 19 secondary schools and 7 special schools in the Bournemouth and Poole area. There are also local colleges for Further Education, such as Bournemouth & Poole College and many training providers.

You can enter an apprenticeship from the age of 16 and you will be paid at least the national minimum wage. For further information, advice and guidance on choices available please see our booklet Your Future Your Choice.
