How can I help my child with their career plans?

  • Talk about likes and dislikes with your daughter, and discuss how her preferences might relate to career choices.

  • Research with your daughter the areas they can go into, and most importantly how they might get there.

  • Help them to explore the possible employers, apprenticeship providers and further education courses available in your local area. There are lots of virtual opportunities shared with your daughter. Get her to check her school email.
