Next steps after Results Day

It’s not easy being a parent – arguably the most important job in the world, and it comes with no instructions manual!

If your son or daughter is getting their GCSE or A-levels results this summer, you’ll be keen to support them as best as you can. This means you may find yourself having important conversations about their future.

We know opening the envelope with their results can be an anxious moment for many young people, with their future career aspirations dependant on their grades. We also know that on occasion their results may not be what they expected.

At Activate Learning, we support every young person to find an exciting career pathway in an industry that they’ll love.

If you want to help your child continue their career pathway, whatever their results, good careers advice and guidance is key. Why not come along to our free advice events this summer, to get dedicated careers advice, find out about sources of potential financial support and more.

The sessions are taking place at Banbury, Oxford and Reading, on:

• Thursday 13 August, 12-4pm
• Thursday 20 August, 10am-6pm
• Friday 21 August, 10am-4pm

Can’t make any of these dates? Why not come and see us later this month? We are open Monday to Friday, and will be open until later on Tuesdays and Thursdays until late September.
