Information for Parents/Carers
To assist students in finding their future education and career pathways we have created a full school careers plan (which can be found on the ‘annual careers plan’ tab) with a list of the outcomes we wish to achieve. That way you can track your child’s journey through school. We understand how important career decisions are. Therefore, the Parents Career Information section of the website is designed to assist you with that process – by providing you with a range of resources that can help you. As you scroll down there are interactive links. Please also explore the links in the careers section for:
- SEND Careers information
- Apprenticeships (parent pack)
- Local labour market
- Useful links page.
Careers Advice is not just for Young People, Parents/Carers also need support to help young people make tough and challenging decisions. Careers advice for parents is a website that has been set up by careers professionals and recommended by the UK Career Development Institute.
‘Careers Advice for Parents aims to give you an easy-to-read overview of all the essential facts on finding jobs and apprenticeships or choosing further and higher education courses which could make a real difference to your child’s future career prospects.’
