Find out about child employment rights, when you need a child performance licence and how to become a child chaperone.

  • Children and young people in employment  

    Know the law when it comes to employing 13-16 year-olds

  • Apply for a Child Performance Licence 

    You must get a performance licence if there are children taking part in a performance you are producing or organising (as long as they are not exempt). We issue licences to protect a child’s education, health, safety and welfare.

  • Apply to be a child chaperone 

    Chaperones look after children who take part in performances (eg television, film or theatre) or activities (eg sports or modelling).

  • Child employment rights 

    Find out when children of school age can legally work and the type of work they can do. Children can only work if they have a valid work permit. Employers are responsible for applying for a child’s work permit.
