I’ve sent my second parent Focus newsletter out today. If you would like to receive it you can use the form below or sign up here 

Some of you will be parents of children planning for university this Autumn or it’s on the horizon. Here are some resources I thought would be helpful

Know Before You Go

University can be a very exciting time in your life, but it can also be a big change from school or college. It is normal to face challenges as you transition from one part of your life to another. By knowing what to expect and having a resource to help you navigate the ups and downs, you’re setting yourself up for success over the next several years.
Know Before You Go is an e-resource that is intended for Year 12-13 students, as you transition from school/college to university.

These resources are aimed at career advisors but may also be useful for you as parents/guardians.

Transition into University

Starting university can be a wonderful and exciting experience, but it can also bring its own unique challenges. It’s natural to feel nervous or overwhelmed about the change, and it can be a while before you feel like you’ve found your feet at university.
Transitions is here to provide a single source that you can reach for when you need helpful tips for navigating university life.
