The most important thing you can do to help your child is to make sure you are fully informed, listen to your child , be open minded and encourage them to explore all of the options available to them. Attending college open events with your child is a great way to find out all about future study and career options.

Not sure what route will be best for your child? Let us help you guide them to a subject and course that is right for them.

How to choose the right course and subject

Ask your child:

  • Will the way the course is taught suit their learning style?

  • What careers can they progress to after completing the course?

  • Do they want to work and learn at the same time or study full-time?

  • What subjects will help them to achieve their career goals?

  • What subjects do they have a real passion for?

  • Do they want to try a new subject that they haven't studied before or a subject that they're familiar with and know they're good at?
