Students out for summer

As schools, colleges and universities break up for summer, there's all sorts planned. Pokémon Go—gotta catch 'em all—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.
