I have received and email today saying that I am getting kicked out of college because I am at 59% attendance and that I can not pass my course. I have no motivation towards the course and they would not let me swap to a different one. What do I do as I'm only 16 and have to be in education?

It's likely to be too late in the year to join another college. You could look for a traineeship which is a short course that some people do before an apprenticeship if they aren't sure what they want to do. Do some volunteering and gain some work experience. Try to get a part time job. See if any colleges or organisations are doing any short courses. Whatever you do, don't do nothing as it won't help you

First and foremost grow up, and take your commitments seriously. You fully deserved to be kicked out, and if you don't change you will go through life being sacked and losing any (decent) friends you might have.

Thank you, I do have a part time job working in a chip shop and I do volunteer work at a food bank. Do i not have to be in education until I'm 18 though, so I wouldn't be aloud to not go into another course

Technically you have to be in education, employment or training. Realistically speaking this could be a job that provides on the job training. It's good that you have a part time job and do some volunteering, that's a good start. I would also suggest trying to find some work experience in different industries to see what you enjoy etc
