Parents and Carers

As parents and carers you play a vital part in ensuring your child gains the best information, advice and guidance to prepare them for life once they leave Hope Academy both with the skills they have developed and the knowledge they have.  Therefore, this website should provide you with all the information you need to help support you and enable you to take an active role in your child’s Careers Education. Understanding the changes in the Labour Market is equally important as knowing the education providers that are available, as it is this information on the growth market that may help develop a successful career.

As Parent and Carers you are also welcome to receive any Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance. We have plenty of information, prospectuses and resources to help you create a CV and prepare for job or college interviews, so please feel free to contact the designated CEIAG to find out more.
