Helping your child to choose the right course can be pretty daunting. You don’t want to close off their options, but you want also want them to follow their passions.
Consider the following questions as you talk with them about their possible courses, and remember you can always talk with your child’s learning adviser or the career adviser here at school, or take a look at https://www.careers.govt.nz/and individual tertiary websites.
Questions to consider: What is your child’s possible career pathway? What are they interested in? What are they good at? What are the entrance requirements for the courses s/he may want to do when they leave school? How can we find this out? Are there other courses that better support their pathway? What might they need for the future?
