Colleges and Sixth forms
Some colleges and sixth forms in Islington offer a range of courses for school leavers.
Islington offers a bursary scheme which gives teenagers from low-income families up to £300 a year to help them start and stay in further education.
Apprenticeships are a great way for young people to start their career. They’ll gain experience and work towards a nationally-recognised qualification, while being paid to do a real job.
Education and careers advice for young people
Islington's youth website izzy-info.com has lots of information and advice for young people to help them plan their future.
