    I left school this year (16 years Old, 17 in November) and received my GCSE results in August. It is now mid-October and I am not in education anywhere.

    I am looking for an apprenticeship as sixth form and college aren't right for me. I honestly just need the money. If I could get a full-time job I would but I have to be in education till im 18.

    Since college and Sixthform started back in September I assume it is now illegal for me to be out of education. Does anyone know how long I can be out of education before I get into trouble?

    You have to be in education in England until you are 18. So either Sixth form, Collage or an Apprenticeship
