Key information for parents

If your son or daughter is thinking of going to college or starting an apprenticeship, there can be a lot of information to research, learn and take in.

We’ve decided to take on some of the hard work for you by producing two handy guides that will provide you with all of the information you need to help guide your child as they make their decision on their next steps, or for any parents of current students or apprentices who want to know more about the college and the support it provides.

If you need any further information about any aspect of college life, please call us on 01246 500500.

How to support your child with Post 16 career choices

Parents and Careers have a key role to play in the decision-making processes and the general career path their child chooses to pursue. Sometimes it is difficult to know how involved to be. Should you adopt a hands-on role? What is the best advice you can give your child? When do you need to get involved?.

We’ve put together some useful links to advice so that you can support your child with their choices:

Keep in touch

It’s important for us to keep in touch with you throughout the academic year, providing updates on your child’s progress and changes and improvements taking place at the college.
