At KE we believe it is vital to foster links with parents. When year 12 students register onto the Unifrog software, a parental log in is also sent out via the college email. This allows parents access to the Unifrog software so that they too can utilise it to support their child.
Each year we hold cross college events such as our Careers Convention and Apprenticeship Events which parents are usually invited to attend with their child.
In light of COVID restrictions in 20/21 we held three separate “Careers Weeks” where there was a focus on Careers Options, Apprenticeships and Higher Education for all year 12 students. Please take a look at our KE Virtual Careers Weeks Live Events page for more info.
In addition to the cross college events outlined above, we also run parent specific talks, such as:
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions we are unable at present to hold our annual Parents/Carers' Forum's in person. However please see below the presentations and resources that has been previously covered.
This event is designed for parents/carers with little or no experience of Higher Education and covers both UCAS and university research, as well as student finance.
