I know a 17 year old who is out of education and not in work. They are from an extremely disadvantaged background. They told me that they had applied to College and sat a functions test that they scored highly on. They want to get a Maths and English GCSE and enrol on a BTEC course (they didn't have the required entrance grades, hence the functions test). The young person told me that they have now not heard from the College and are worried that they didn't get in! As a family friend I am not authorised to chase this up for them. Please could someone advise what their right's are and who I could put them in touch with. It is so sad to see a young person in this situation.
