Stop. Don't Drop out of college and sixth form

Person in high visability jacket, helmet and ear defenders with the text Stop! Don't Drop. Get in touch so we can discuss your options

Have you recently started college or sixth form and now wondering if you've made the right decision? Stop. Don't Drop.

Don't rush into a decision you might later regret. Give yourself time to consider the situation and how you're feeling.

Take your time

You should take your time to:

  • Understand why you're having doubts. Is it the college / school environment or the course?
  • Reflect on how attending the course makes you feel. Are you unhappy or just bored with the course?
  • Consider the consequences of leaving a course. Would leaving the course affect your career goal?
