With the introduction of higher fees The Careers Group has experienced an increase in the number of parents wanting advice on helping their children choose the right University. In response to this need for advice and guidance we have successfully designed and delivered University Challenge workshops.
The workshop presents unbiased, practical information which includes:
- a review of the factors which inform their child’s university course choice
- ways to improve understanding of the diverse information provided by the media about higher education and the labour market
- an outline of the UCAS process
- advice on personal statements
- useful tools to assist with decision making.
So far The Careers Group has delivered over 15 workshops which have been attended by over 155 parents.
