Parent Webinar "Making career decisions: How influencers can help"
Young people's career aspirations are often shaped by the expectations of their influencers (parents/carers, peers and teachers) who may not have the most up-to-date knowledge of career, study and funding options. A young person’s chosen career path may be based on ‘what is possible’ rather than what they actually aspire to.
Influencers, particularly parents and carers, are an essential part of the career information network for young people. Keeping up-to-date with scholarship opportunities related to career interests, co-creating a portfolio to address the scholarship conditions and consulting an independent career information website, such as myfuture, are excellent places to start.
