Teste de inglês (4)

  1. 1. English Workshee t Jobs Name:___________________________ Nº_______ Getting a full-time Job at 16 in Britain. You can leave school at 16 and get a job, but you can't work full time until the last Friday in June- even if you have turned 16 before this. There are also limitations on where you can work because of your age. For example, you won't be able to take a job which envolves driving, because you are not legally allowed to drive until you are 17. When thinking about getting a job when you leave school, you need to think about the future, not just the present. How about learning while you earn? Try to find a job which offers training even if it pays less! Getting a job with training that leads to a qualification will help you progress in your work and when the time comes to move you will have relevant experience and qualifications. When you apply for a job, make sure you ask what training or opportunities are available. You will need to find out whether it is “in-house” ( run by the company you are working for) or external (through a training provider, perhaps a college). If you are 16 or 17 and you do decide to take a job that isn't offering you training that leads to a qualification, you may be entitled to time off for study or training during normal working hours. If you decide you are going to look for a job at 16 when you finish Year 11, you will be entitled to receive the national minimum wage. www.connexions-direct.com (adapted) true or false?
