Deciding not to continue with your education is something you shouldn't take lightly. It could potentially make a big difference to your life now and long into the future.
Make sure you've talked it through with someone before speaking to your place of education about not returning.
Your CLIC Sargent Young People's Social Worker or Community Worker can discuss with you what your next steps could be, including options regarding future careers, training, apprenticeships, further and higher education, or returning to education in the future.
The work and further education page also has a list of organisations that can help with this issue.
