As schools, colleges and universities break up for summer, there's all sorts planned. Catching up with Love Island might keep you busy. For some, a fun-packed holiday abroad is on the cards.  

But many students will start a new job. Summer is an ideal time to gain new skills—and earn some cash!

There's usually a summer job to suit everyone. You could be volunteering overseas or working in residential summer camps, outdoor centres, festivals or holiday parks.

Wherever you end up, it's worth being aware of the law and how it can help you.

There are laws covering the type of work you can and can't do, minimum wages, working hours and rest breaks, to name just a few.

To find out more about employment law for young people, visit the Citizens Advice website.
