I have just started year 11 and am about to turn 16 in a few days. I have been thinking about getting a job either for a few hours after school or on the weekend just to earn some extra money and get some experience. I think I will be able to handle the pressure of exams and work at the same time providing I can get some good hours.
I was just wondering if anyone could give me some advice about this and possibly give me ideas as to what I would do and how long would be sensible to work for?
I appreciate any advice and replies you could give me.
Should i get a job in year 11? Watch

When I was in year 11 I worked at Kumon tuition centre, it was only 8 hours a week max, 2 hour shifts and in all honestly I could of done more! So tuition centres are usually good to look into, they love GCSE students! Try Explore Learning if there is one close!
Retail usually leads to lots of hours so I wouldn't recommend shops unless you triple check the hours you are doing before hand!
Just don't pile up too many hours leading up to exams and make sure the company knows that around that time you may need time off!
