Post 16 school, college and university

All young people should have high aspirations for the future and be able to get the education and training that will let them achieve their goals. All colleges, post-16 providers and universities should support young adults with special needs and disabilities.

What does post-16 study look like?

Study after 16 is different. Less hours, days and weeks. More subjects and different qualifications. Schools, colleges, even learning at work.
