Youth Employment UK Launch Parent Hub

Young people tell us that they rely on their parents and carers as one of the key sources of information for careers and employability advice, so, we’ve pulled together this handy hive of information to support parents when tackling those big career questions. 

Youth Employment UK has been providing young people with skills and careers information since 2012. In 2015 we worked with young people to build our online Skills and Careers Hub and worked with schools, colleges and partners to build our Teacher Hub. Now, having listened again to young people we have further developed our site by adding a Parent Hub to help parents and carers support their young people navigate the incredible future before them.

What is the Parent Hub?

The Parent Hub is a space for parents and carers to get support and guidance on how to tackle the big questions young people have at key junctures of their education and employment journey. The space covers information for those supporting young people aged 14 – 24. You will find information to support GCSE options, technical education, choosing careers, applying for jobs and everything in-between.

How do I use it?

The Parent Hub is free to access and explore, you can search through the topics and articles pulled together from our expert team and range of brilliant partners.

What if I can’t find what I am looking for?

We have pulled together articles to support common questions we receive but if you can’t find you are looking for then getting in touch with us at
