For Parents

How to support your child's future career choices

At Victoria College, we understand the journey from starting in Year 7 to finishing school post 18, can be bewildering for both you and your children.  There are choices to make, at Key Stage 4 when making option choices, making post 16 decisions and finally supporting choices post 18.

Ensuring your children are set up for a successful career, future financial security and a good quality of life is a pressing challenge for every parent.  As parents, your children will look to you for advice and guidance even if they don't like to admit it!

At Victoria College, we believe that each student can achieve his ambition whatever course of action is chosen.  A role for parents is to instil three core values to aid them in their careers - self-belief, resilience and discipline. With these three skills developed over time, your children can rise to the top of any profession they choose.  Parents can draw from their own experience, teach their children that it won't be a straight path and there may be bumps in the road and times of low motivation, but equip them with the mind-set to overcome these and move forward is the best gift a parent can give.
