benefits to PARENTS

We all want the best for our children as they grow up. More than ever in today’s fast-changing world, it’s natural to worry if they are ready for the next stage in their life when they leave school.

What’s the best next step for them? Will there be the kind of jobs they want? Should they sign up for more studies and get more qualifications. What about on -the-job training programmes?
