4. Volunteering/working with training
Young people are still able to enter the world of work upon the completion of secondary education.
You can participate in a minimum of 20 hours per weeks of volunteering, employment or self-employment per week. This is provided you combine this with some form of part-time education or training.
Young people are required to participate in at least 280 hours of accredited education or training per year. This is equivalent to one day per week during term time.
