As a parent, you may all wish you had a crystal ball so you knew what was coming around the corner and could then guide your child into a secure future. Although we cannot predict the future, there are some things we know to be true and we can use this information to help children prepare and make wise choices about their pathway through life.
The education and career options available to young people today are complex and varied. Students can choose from a wide range of academic, vocational and work-related pathways and are increasingly being asked to make these choices earlier.
In order to give themselves the best chance in life, young people need to ensure they are as ‘career ready’ as they possibly can be by the time they leave full time education.
This means, not only that they achieve the most appropriate qualifications for their career choice but that they also develop a range of personal skills, qualities and experiences which will give them the resilience to manage their own career and pathway through life.
