Parental Entitlement

Investing in your Son/ Daughter’s Future Research has consistently shown that parents and carers are the most influential factor in students’ decisions about the future. Your support and encouragement influence their choices, and the guidance you provide will be invaluable to their eventual achievements and career pathways. The jobs of the future may be very different from your own experiences and choices. In fact, they may not even been invented yet! There are some very simple and practical steps you can take to support your child.

  • Talk to them about their current educational attainment and estimated grades and encourage them to aim high (the skills shortages of the future will be in higher level jobs)
  • Discuss where they want to be and research how to get there (lots of great resources in the Academy and on the internet)
  • Use the bespoke National Careers Service website and the tools within it
  • Encourage them to seek out the advice and experiences they need to help them achieve their goals
  • Help them with the steps they need to take. You are not alone in this!
