Below is Northumberland County Council's advice on students who are in employment:


Did you know that?

● All children from the age of 13 years and who are working must be registered with the Local Authority and be issued with a work permit.

● It is an offence for an employer to employ children without registering with the local authority first.

● The numbers of hours you can work whilst attending school are restricted. Children must not work before 7am and after 7pm.

● Any children working without a permit is not covered by their employer’s liability insurance.
