Careers Provision Parents

The importance of being involved in your child’s career choices cannot be overstated. Setting aspirational yet achievable goals and encouraging them towards reaching them is one of the key roles of a parent or carer. One wise person once said that a parent or carer’s main roles were two-fold: “Give them roots, then give them wings.” Hopefully, with good careers advice from parents, carers, other significant adults, teachers and Careers professionals as well as from various internet sources, your child will have a good idea of how high to fly and where to.

The leaflet here should give you an overview of the aims of our Careers strategy at the UTC, with several useful websites on the last pages for you to explore (also included as links below).
