When a young person stops being of compulsory school age (16 years) or completes Year 10 they enter their senior phase of learning—Years 11 and 12.

During the compulsory participation phase, a young person must participate in an eligible option.

An eligible option is participation on a full-time basis in one of the following:

  • approved education or training (including registration for home education)
  • paid employment
  • a combination of approved education, training and paid employment.

Eligible options for education or training are provided by learning institutions such as state schools, universitites, TAFE institutes or registered training organisations.

If your child is registered for home education and turns 17 during the year they will be able to remain registered until 31 December of that year, providing the standard conditions of registration, such as reporting, are met.
