This site has been created to provide young people with the information they need to make decisions about their future.
It has been developed in partnership with local providers to provide young people with details of all post 16 options, enabling them to shape the future they want.
Visit the post 16 options section to start planning your future. There is also information about where you can go for help to overcome barriers that are preventing you from continuing your learning, visit the help & information section for more details.
Staying in Learning after 16 can open up many opportunities that will allow you to enjoy new experiences, learn new skills, meet different people, improve your earning potential and increase your knowledge and confidence. At Swindon Borough Council we want to encourage all young people up to the age of 19 .
