CAREERS: Parents / Carers information and resources

Current research shows that parents/carers are the greatest influence on a child’s career decision.

With an ever-changing labour market, changes to the education and examination systems, along with the introduction of various new pathways into the world of work, it can be difficult to know how best to support your child.

All pupils are encouraged to participate in our Careers Programme and have access to careers guidance meetings with our Careers Advisers.

As a parent or carer, you may meet a member of the Careers Team at pupil review meetings, EHCP reviews, and parents’ events. In addition, you can contact the school to arrange a meeting, phone call, virtual meeting via TEAMS or ZOOM.
