We all go through change. Some of us adapt to new situations quickly, while for others it takes a while to find our feet.

It doesn’t matter how quickly you or your child moves through change - our guide provides insights on how you can help them make the best transition possible as they embark on their new journey.

One of the biggest complaints we hear from apprentices and trainees is the challenge they have in working with older ‘boring’ people.
Likewise, one of the biggest challenges in the workforce today is working across different generations. This guide will help you teach your child what to expect from other generations and how to create working relationships.
Setting Goals
Setting goals and boosting your child’s motivation
Whether it’s a goal we kicked in sport or something we achieved personally, goals make us feel good.
Helping your child set goals throughout their apprenticeship or traineeship will give them something to strive towards, keep them motivated and help them stay focused on performance at work.
