Please never say "they don't listen to me anyway!". While it seems that way, parents can and do have a huge impact and influence on their child's progress, decisions and destination.
However, when you yourself feel a bit lost, how can you offer them advice about what road to take in terms of further study? Get in touch with your queries.
As a parent, you'll know only too well that time can be precious. It is difficult to find the time to look into all the options your son or daughter has and to figure out the best pathway for their future.
With the right expertise and knowledge you need to guide your child, we can help you through.
Whether they are choosing their GCSE options, A-levels, college course or degree subjects, it is not always as straight forward as it may appear.
Please see the links below for more information and advice.
Parents often ask what are the best options, such as full-time university courses or an apprenticeship, college vs 6th form, A-Levels vs BTEC Diplomas, and so on.
The answer? That depends on what outcome your son or daughter wants, to do in the future, how they prefer to learn, and what options are available at the time. It will also depend, of course, on what grades they might obtain.
Keep an open mind and encourage your child to explore all the options available, check the entry requirements, have a back-up plan in case things go wrong and apply for more than one option.
