Please note: these pages contain archived information. Whilst the details were correct when first published, they may since have 'aged' and some of the information could be out-of-date.
The age at which young people can leave education or training is going up. This means that from 2013, young people will need to stay in learning until they are 17 and from 2015, until their 18th birthday.
This doesn't just mean staying at school, there are lots of other options available including still being able to work if they choose to, but it may feel like there are too many confusing routes for them to choose alone.
If you need help to choose your next steps don't miss the Surrey Opportunities Fair at Epsom Down's Race Course on Tuesday 8 October 2013.
Colleges, sixth forms, training providers, employers and careers advisors will be on hand between 1pm and 7pm to give you free advice and help you find the path that's right for you.
Options could include staying in full-time education, such as school or college; or choosing work-based learning, such as an apprenticeship.
If you are employed, self employed or volunteering for 20 hours or more a week, you could still attend part-time education or training.
Don't miss this opportunity to get the support you need so you have the best possible chance of getting the job you want.
Young people, parents and carers are welcome and you will all be in with a chance of winning an iPad or Thorpe Park tickets.
