Information for parents and carers

Parents & Carers

Parents and Carers make up an important part of a young person’s career network and ensuring they are informed and included at key transition stages is an important part of a Career Leaders role. 

Parents and carers may well have ideas about their own child’s career, or may need to update their knowledge of qualifications and career paths, so involving parents in school events and keeping them updated with information that equips them with the relevant resources and facts allows them to fully explore career choices with their children. 

If you are looking for inspirational speakers or career ambassadors to embed activities into your careers programme try the following links, or contact your local enterprise partnership.
