    You get free funding from the council to get qualifications for your laziness. If you get a degree however you can kiss any genuine skills training goodbye.

    I'm not sure but I'm her parents might get into trouble with the government for allowing that. (Unless she has a medical condition?) It is very lazy what she is thinking of doing.
    It's less likely that people, without higher qualifications, will get jobs, become internet sensations or become millionaires. Sorry to be harsh but she might want to invest in a mop...

    I don't want to be blunt but you might as well immigrate to a country that has no laws on further education because you have to be in education until your 18. Enjoy the fines from the police and let your mum know she will attend court half a dozen times including massive fine bills and jail sentences.

    This is my question too as I started college in September this year, I am 16 and I'm doing childhood studies level 2. I picked this course considering I thought I would enjoy it and I would be good but I don't and I'm not! I haven't managed to complete my assignments which are all too much for me and it's making me feel like ****. I would much rather get a full time job (I have just started a new job just to put that out there) and start my life already because looking after children isn't what I want to do with my life I just want a good job and a family!! I don't know what to do anymore it's just making me upset because I have to get up and waste my life in college not even learning as I can't even concentrate for over 15-20mins😫😫
