Parents and carers, get ahead this summer and download our free guide
July marks the end of the academic year and the school summer holidays will start. This is a chance for your child to enjoy the better weather, make the most of outdoors, have additional free time to do the things they enjoy and to think about their future and what they might like to do next.
Depending on where they are in their academic journey, there’s plenty they can do over the holidays that can help them prepare for the next stage of their life – and it can be fun too! Whether they’re 15 and starting to think about what they might like to do when next year’s GCSEs are over or whether they’re 18 and making plans for adulthood, we’ve created this guide to help you understand what choices they have and what action they can take over the next six weeks to help them make their dreams a reality.
This guide includes information on how your children can:
Find out more about themselves and what they like;
Develop life skills;
Stand out from others;
Decide which subjects to study next;
Select the right university and the UCAS application process;
Write a personal statement; and
Other options if academic learning is not for them.
