Apply for a child employment permit
What is the child employment permit for?
When a child of compulsory school age is employed to work after school, at weekends or during school holidays, the law states that they must be registered for work with their local authority, who will issue a work permit.
Similarly, if they are involved in entertainment, which includes television, film, theatre, modelling and paid sport, they may require a performance licence and a licensed chaperone.
