Hi everyone,

I would like a bit of advice please:

Our son will be 16 when we make the move to Australia (Western).

At what age can he leave school and find a job? Is it compulsory to leave and go to College or find an apprenticeship?

He really hates school but he tries hard and is very well behaved and liked.

I understand fees for Tafe are in the thousands but do they expect a teenager under 18 to pay for a course at this expense? We do not have extra thousands of pounds!!

He is really keen to just find a job as he would have done his final exams and left school by the time we leave the UK.

Many thanks for any advice.

Xx

Age in education does not really matter, so long as you have the heart to learn, I know for sure you will succeed!
