Support your students into study after high school
Schools engagement parents guide

Life after high school can be an exciting yet stressful time for your son or daughter. It can also be unknown territory for parents. You'll no doubt have questions, and possibly even concerns, about what's in store for your child.

When your children are making these decisions about their future, there are a lot of things to consider. Students will make more informed choices about university courses if they follow their interests, explore their strengths and weaknesses, and research careers they're interested in. 

For more information, view our guide for Parents and Guardians.
