Careers – Parental Engagement

Talk to your child about their options. Ask about estimated grades and push them to meet or over achieve their targets.

 

Have discussions with your child about where they want to go, what career path they want to follow and spend time looking into what options are available. There are plenty of useful links on our website and there is free careers advice provided by government on the national careers service website.

 

Engage with your child on regular occasions to keep careers at the forefront of their mind. Research shows that big picture thinking and long term goal setting has a very positive impact on progress and attainment.

 

Together we can ensure that your child has various options open to them at the end of each key stage and that the choices they make are the right ones and are for the right reasons.
