Question Description
My age is 15 and I want to study and work in UK. Will they allow me to do any job? And what will be the wage per hour for students like me whose age is below 16 years?
Answers

You are too young. I am not sure whether the labour law of UK allows anyone below 16 years to work or not. I have heard that UK labour law recognizes anyone as a worker only when they reach above school leaving age. So, you may not be allowed to work in UK at this age.

The minimum national wage for the workers above school living age (i.e. 16 years) but under 18 years is £3.64 per hour.

The minimum wage rate only applies to workers who are 16 and above.

The youngest age your child can work part-time is 13 years old, with the exception of children involved in: television, drama, film.

the 16-17 rate - £3.68
