Information for Parents & Carers

We all know being a teenager can be hard. Supporting one can be too. Particularly when you’re helping them make big decisions that could shape their future. One thing’s for certain; helping them make a choice they feel good about now is the best way to put them on the path to future happiness and success. Whether it’s exactly what you expected them to do next, or something a little unexpected.

That’s what this page is all about. Taking you through the options and helping you find the information and advice you need, to help them choose a next step that’s right for them.

Don't forget that, whatever choice they make, they’ll have to stay in education or training until they are 18.
