Careers Information, Advice and Guidance to help your child

As your child progresses through school and starts looking ahead to a life after education, it can be difficult for Parents and Carers to know how to help them navigate the confusing world of career options. For many, the ultimate challenge is knowing how to offer support without projecting your own career aspirations onto your children. With so much change – from new apprenticeship schemes, emerging technologies, political and environmental upheaval and the coronavirus crisis – Parents and Carers can feel in need of a guiding hand themselves.

This guide contains:

  1. Choosing a career path
  2. Pathways into work
  3. University
  4. Apprenticeships
  5. Employability skills
  6. Subject journeys
  7. Gap years
  8. How to future-proof your child’s career
  9. Action plan

This guide has been created by www.successatschool.org to help you take a positive role in your child’s career journey. You will find a step-by-step guide to help them focus on career paths connected to their skills and interests. Please click on the image to access this publication.

The Parents' Guide to Careers

Whether your child is starting to think about what they might like to do when GCSEs are over or whether they’re 18 and making plans for adulthood, this guide will help you understand what vocational choices your children have, how you can support them and ideas on what they can do now to help them stand out.

This guide includes:

  • How to talk to your teen about their future;
  • Virtual work experience - what it is and why it's so important;
  • A summary of all vocational options after GCSE;
  • Apprenticeships - why they're of value and whether they'd suit your child;
