Abstract

Leaving secondary school means making the change from being a school student to becoming a young adult. It is a critical
time and can have a significant impact on the lives of the young person and family members. This transition period involves many changes which can be both challenging and rewarding. It is a time of moving towards independence and may not always be an easy or smooth process.
Choices about further study, training for work and moving out of home all need to be considered.
