About this Event

Guiding teenagers through the various career and study options available to them in the modern world can be a challenge. They see so many choices and hear different views from peers and others – it can be hard for them to know what the right choice is.

 

This free seminar will assist parents and caregivers of Year 11-13 students with skills to help their teen get the information they need and evaluate their options.

 

The seminar will cover:

  • Career pathways
  • Supporting your teenager with career decision making
  • Choosing tertiary options to suit your teen
  • Communicating effectively with your teen
  • Key questions to consider
  • Top 10 skills/attributes sought by employers

UC Career Consultants will take you through a range of strategies on how you can support your teenager's career decisions.

 

NOTE: This seminar is NOT about study options at the University of Canterbury | Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha (UC) – it is designed to help you help your child consider ALL their options, whether this is work, university, polytechnic, an apprenticeship, private providers or other possibilities.

 

This seminar is brought to you by UC Careers, University of Canterbury
