Devon Education Welfare Service (Child Employment and Performance) provides information and advice regarding the employment of children and state the type of work that a child or young person may do including the hours that they can work.
They also issue work permits for children who are employed and provide advice to the entertainment industry (amateur and professional).
In addition they issue performance licences for children involved in film, TV, theatre, modelling and paid sport. They are also responsible for the licensing of chaperones who accompany children who are performing and provide advice and guidance as necessary.
All information and application forms for work permits and performance and chaperone licences are available on our website.
