Resources for Parents and Carers

Our students’ parents and carers are a valued part of our college community. We know that many of our learners value input and support from their parents/carers both before they join us and while they study here.
Start Profile – Online Careers Platform

All students aged 16 – 18 have been assigned an individual account to the careers platform Start Profile. Students can access a range of resources such as careers and skills audits, a CV builder, up to date LMI careers and employment information and apprenticeship vacancies. We would encourage parents and carers to utilise this platform with your child to support their career decision making.

Students will have been given their login details, however if they need to check this please email or alternatively ask their progress leader.

Careers Advice and Guidance

All students have access to Careers Advice and Guidance appointments at college. A team of fully qualified Careers Advisors operate across all college sites and parents and carers are welcome to attend appointments if they wish.

All students aged 16 – 24 will be offered a careers guidance appointment during the last term, however students and parents can book appointments with the Careers Advice and Guidance Team at any point of the year.  The team operate during half term and this is a good opportunity for parents and carers to book appointments if required.

Local Employers and Organisations

The Careers Advice and Guidance Team is committed to giving our students meaningful encounters with employers, universities and other support agencies. Throughout the year we organise a range of events and sessions for students and we hold an annual careers fair with more than 30 employers in attendance.

Examples of some of our partnership work include Unilever, Matalan, the National Careers Service, University of Central Lancashire, Liverpool John Moores,  the Prince’s Trust, Bridging the Gap, Liverpool Families into Work, Elevate and many more.
