Information for Parents and Guardians
What parents/guardians of an apprentice need to know
Every apprentice will need the support of their family, friends or support network to successfully achieve their apprenticeship. This may mean a new way of scheduling their time or thinking about their priorities throughout the week. Working and studying at the same time takes commitment and dedication, and at times they will need your help and encouragement as they adjust to find work- life-balance. Most importantly they will need someone to:
‹ Share in their excitement about their new endeavour
‹ Encourage them to keep on top of their studies
‹ Keep accurate records that support their apprenticeship ‹ Maintain a commitment to learning
‹ Practice their communication skills as much as possible
‹ Help them to gain control of their nerves before their assessments ‹ Share with them stress management techniques that work for you ‹ Support them in their pursuit of their dream job
