There are lots of places you can go for help and support when investigating your options after your GCSEs. Full-time education and training is free for 16 – 19 year olds, but you may be eligible for additional financial help.
What help is available?
The first place you should go for help is your teacher or tutor. Your school should provide you with careers information and guidance.
They can also let you know about funding opportunities – though full-time education and training for 16-19 year olds is free of charge – as well as letting you know about support available for students with learning difficulties, disabilities, or SEND.
We have a support team who are available Monday to Friday, from 09:00 to 17:00 (UK time). You can contact us by calling 0371 468 2568 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
