YouthTube - for young people in Hampshire

Going to college or sixth form - full time post-16 education

In Hampshire, post-16 learners have a choice of different types of institution providing education and training, including further education colleges, sixth form colleges, specialist colleges for young people with learning difficulties and disabilities, and work-based learning providers. There are a further five colleges and one school sixth form in Southampton and Portsmouth.

Colleges hold open days/open evenings which are a great opportunity to have a look round and find out more about the courses, and what it’s like to study there. You can also search their websites and prospectus to find out more. See the map of colleges and sixth forms for further details.

16 – 19 Bursary Fund

16 - 19 Bursary Fund provides support to young people to help you stay in education and training after 16 and can be used to contribute towards transport costs. You can apply to your school, college or training provider.
