Make sure to speak to your child's school about the options your child is researching, and the pathways that interest them. They can advise you and your child on the pros and cons to their decisions, and ensure you all know how and when to apply for certain qualifications or institutions.  

Schools also hold a lot of information about different careers, and can help you research what qualifications are right for their chosen future career.  

We can also provide support for you and your child, if you have a query you require help with, find our contact details below:

To help you with understanding your child's options in the future, have a look at the following section, on Options at 18. This will provide you with an understanding of what happens next, in order to help create a plan through their education from 16-18.
