Careers Advice For Teenagers and Parents

Parents and Guardians included in the Teenagers Careers Advice Programme

The Parents And Guardians Extension

We understand that it can be distressing when you are unsure how to help your child choose the best career path for them. To ameliorate that, at Career Analysts we provide in-depth careers advice, as well as help with A level and degree choices, in our teenagers programme.

Our careers advisors help them make vital education and career decisions, so they can discover which career suits them best. Your child will need to complete some online psychometric tests so that we can better understand their interests, personality and aptitudes. Their personal careers advisor will then look at the results and research which career options would best suit your teenager.  Then, they will meet your teenager in a one-to-one consultation, in which they offer careers advice about their next steps – what career is best for them in the future and which education decisions would be best in order to move in that direction.

We know that, as parents or guardians, you want to support them throughout the entire process, so we offer the Parents and Guardians Extension. This is a further consultation between you and their careers advisor. The Parents and Guardians Extension gives you the opportunity to discuss the results of your teenager’s psychometric assessment with their careers advisor, and it helps you understand our careers advice process. This allows you to address your own concerns about helping your child choose a career and discuss the outcomes directly with the careers advisor. We are dedicated to making sure we discuss the results in detail so that everyone can understand what career is best for your teenager and how to get there. We want you to understand exactly why we provided certain careers advice and what your child’s psychometric tests reveal about their career prospects.

Your Involvement in the Careers Advice Programme

We separate the two meetings because we understand the process from both sides. We recognise the difficulty in helping your teenager choose the right career; equally, we appreciate that the young person needs to feel free to speak about their own aspirations and career goals without the presence of parents. So, the initial one-on-one consultation allows them to express themselves freely and to address any concerns they may have. This enables us to provide better careers advice to teenagers, specifically tailored to suit them as an individual.

Then, the Parents and Guardians Extension involves you in the careers advice process without overwhelming your child. You are not left in the dark; you’re able to discuss the psychometric test results with the careers advisor, as well as your teenager’s next steps towards a fruitful and happy career. The careers advisor will explain how she came to her conclusions regarding the right career path for your child.

Our experienced careers advisors understand how difficult it can be for both the young person and their parents or guardians to agree on what career is best for them. Nonetheless, we also understand that you only want what is best for your child in terms of establishing a secure career path. We provide the Parents and Guardians Extension so that you can be involved and made aware of the information we’ve uncovered in our psychometric tests.
