What age can I start work? 

There is no minimum legal age limit for starting work in NSW. Many teenagers start a part-time or casual job while still at school.

But if you are under the age of 17 and wishing to seek full-time work with the intention of leaving school, you should talk to the Career Adviser at your school to find out how you can apply to leave school.
