Apprenticeships advice for parents: Help shape their career

Setting off on a career path can be overwhelming for young people. As their parent, guardian or carer, you’ll play a key role in guiding them as they take their next step. Whether they get top grades or don’t thrive in academic environments, apprenticeships shouldn’t be overlooked. With new higher and degree apprenticeships popping up each year, they could get the best of both worlds – learning and earning at the same time.
