Parents & Carers

This website is one of many ways we get key information and advice to our students, and the people in their lives who are supporting them. You can also visit our 'BLOG' too which has the latest opportunities which may be of interest to learners.


Key information that impacts career choices for young people, such as facts about university funding, changes in the labour market, to knowing how to contact a Careers Adviser for 1:1 help and support is covered and you are invited to browse all the information available, via the menu above.​ Please note that we make changes and update to this website throughout the year.

This page contains some dedicated resources for parents and carers, to help you access good quality information for when you're helping to guide your child through key decisions.

Should you have a query about your child/young person's needs at college, please always contact their Personal Tutor. If the question is career related, the tutor will be able to refer to our team where needed. We also encourage the student themselves to be pro-active, and develop the confidence to seek out what they need. Students can contact us via the 'Contact' page of this website or by checking our details at the bottom of this and each page.
