Peace of mind for parents & carers

As a parent or carer, supporting and inspiring your child who might be considering an apprenticeship can be very valuable. We understand that it can be challenging to navigate this process and determine the best approach. At Worcestershire Apprenticeships we are here to support you with this. Our team is here to provide guidance, answer your questions and offer resources to ensure your child’s success in their apprenticeship journey. We want to help you to support your child’s aspirations and empower them to thrive in their chosen career path.

Guardians of the Apprentice

We have launched a new podcast series, "Guardians of the Apprentice" as a resource specifically for parents, guardians and carers of apprentices. The podcast aims to provide valuable information and insights to help parents navigate the world of apprenticeships. In each episode we will be speaking to current and previous guardians of apprentices who will be sharing their experiences with their children undertaking an apprenticeship.

Top Tips for supporting your child in exploring apprenticeships:

Be open-minded:

Be open to exploring a range of options with your child and try to put aside any preconceptions that you might have


Getting yourself clued up on the career path your child is interested in can help them with exploring their next steps

Help them prepare:

Some ways to help your child prepare could be encouraging them to secure some work experience to boost their application, offering support with CV, cover letter writing or interview preparation for job applications

Ask for help:

Don’t hesitate to ask for support from your child’s school or college, other parents that have been through the same process or Worcestershire Apprenticeships to prepare them for their transition.
