Parents and Carers: Resources

This project aimed to create resources for parents and carers which explain the options for young people post-16 and post-18, celebrate positive role models through case studies, and share labour market information.

Two learners in Years 12 and 13 were employed to develop the resources, enabling the content to match the needs of learners and their parents and carers. A postcard summarising opportunities was printed and delivered to all partner schools and colleges. Online versions of the guide are available via the Hello Future and SkillsFest websites.

Parents and Carers: Marketing

This project aimed to survey parents and carers in the target wards for their feedback and ideas, create a bank of case studies and communicate opportunities through film and social media campaigns. 121 parents completed the survey, 32 of whom live in CCOP target wards. A detailed analysis of results was distributed to all of our Hello Future programme partners to help shape future projects. A further two learners were recruited to support the production of a series of films to raise awareness of higher-level study and to share case studies. A variety of films are in development and were launched in December 2019, these include:

These will be disseminated via schools and colleges, but can be accessed via our resources page, and our YouTube channel. The Skills Fest website has also been developed to promote the events in Furness and the South Lakes and also provides a space to connect people with opportunities.
