Flying Start Booklet (Guide To Learning/Training Options for 16 - 18 year Olds)

Young people are now expected to do some kind of training or education right up to their 18th birthday, even if they work. This doesn’t mean they have to stay on at school. And it doesn’t stop them getting a job at 16 or 17. But it gives them a chance to keep learning – in a way that suits.


Evidence suggests that people earn more over their whole lifetime if they train or study from 16 to 18.

The Choices

There are several choices – including classroom learning, or practical, job-related learning for the more hands-on. The main choices are:

• full-time education, such as school or college
• an apprenticeship or traineeship
• full-time work or volunteering plus part-time education or training.
