Help your child stand out in job, college, sixth-form & internship applications

  • Your child will probably have their own goals and ambitions, but they might need your help in working out the steps to help them achieve these goals.  Whether it's pplying for a job, an apprenticeship, a college place, training or an internship – the bottom line is always the same: they’re more likely to get the interview if their application stands out from others.


    This guide includes tips and ideas on how you can help your child gain the competitive advantage, such as:


    • Taking an online course;
    • Reading;
    • Entering a competition;
    • Getting work experience;
    • Observing or shadowing;
    • Volunteering; 
    • Gaining an award;
    • Investing in self-development and personal growth; and
    • Much more.
