For Parents

Parents often worry about what career and job opportunities will be available for their children when they leave school. Qualifications are important, as well as a strong work ethic, but further education isn’t necessarily for everyone. Even if it is, what options are there?

Parents are key as you have a crucial part to play in influencing your children. We need parent to understand that education is evolving and employability skills are key to your child’s future success.

We need parents to understand what DYW Argyll is about.

Developing the Young Workforce Argyll and their key delivery partners will be available to support parents and provide opportunities for them to learn more about:

  • The benefits of work based learning
  • The importance and relevance of the Modern Apprenticeship family

What is an apprenticeship?

By combining working and learning, an apprenticeship means your child gets the skills, experience and qualifications that help develop their career.

Foundation Apprenticeships – a taste of an apprenticeship while still at school

Modern Apprenticeships – get a job, get paid, get qualified

Graduate Apprenticeships – a new way to work, learn and earn and get a degree
