  • work full time and study part time
  • be involved in part time training whilst volunteering
  • continue full time study at school or college. education. Now you'll want to be equally smart when choosing how to get there

Some students will have had free home to school transport but this ends when you finish year 11.

How you will get to your school or college is your choice but you may want to consider:

  • asking the school or college to see if they arrange any transport themselves

Please see our post 16 transport statement for more details. Please note that the support detailed may change as a result of Covid-19.
