A big part of growing up is starting work. It can be great to have some extra money for yourself, feel more independent, as well as learning the skills you’ll need in the workforce for the rest of your life.

But before you get too keen, there are some things you need to know before you rush out and start applying.

What age can I start working?

The minimum age for starting work is different depending on the state or territory you live in. Take a look at the information we’ve gathered below.


Australian Capital Territory

In the ACT, you can start work from any age you like. However, the tasks you are allowed to do may be restricted until you turn 15. Your employer will also need written parental consent if you are under 15.

What other restrictions are there?


There are also restrictions other than age to consider when starting work. These include how many hours per day or week you are allowed to work, when you are allowed to work, and if you are allowed to leave school to work.

Australian Capital Territory

If you are under the age of 15, you are only allowed to work up to 10 hours per week. Up to 17 years of age, you are not permitted to work during school hours (with the exception of the school holidays).

Your work must also not interfere with your education or training in any way. This means that you might not be allowed to work late at night or early in the morning.

You can work full-time when you turn 17 or when you finish year 12, whichever happens first. If you want to leave school and start working after Year 10, you or your parents need to apply to the Chief Executive of the ACT Department of Education and Training for approval.
