A spokesperson commented; “We know how difficult it is as a parent/carer to support young people with informed decisions relating to their future, especially education, careers and job routes. Making the right decision about career progression routes has never been more important.”
“It can be a minefield to get accurate, timely and important information relating to the many options stages and varied progression routes including Higher and Further Education, University Fees & Loans, Apprenticeships, jobs. It is becoming increasingly important to get the right information at the right time – to help support GCSE options, Post 16 institution choices and Post 18 routes.”
