Help for parents and carers
As a parent or carer, we would like to direct you to the following websites to help your child make decisions about their future – without limiting their options.
www.direct.gov.uk/en/EducationAndLearning/index.htm This is the government’s site for all education and learning. There are many links to find out more about the courses, levels and developments.
(https://nationalcareersservice.direct.gov.uk) National Careers Service has advisers there to offer careers information. It also has a very useful job profiles section explaining what qualifications are required for each career.
Explanation of Qualifications
To find out what the qualification levels mean please visit the GOV.UK website.
To see examples of qualifications and how the different levels compare please visit the Ofqual website.
These are some of the website that we would advise you to look at when considering your Option Choices and future career path.
