For Parents/Guardians

Just as navigating career options can be a challenging process for young people, it can be equally as difficult and frustrating a process for their parents, guardians and supporters.


Helping your child make positive career choices when there are so many different pathways, all leading to a variety of career outcomes is a daunting process. That’s why we’ve put together a wealth of career advice resources for parents, to assist you during this period.

Your role as a parent or support person of a job seeker will often involve coaching and mentoring, helping your child to build their resilience and manage the day-to-day challenges they face as a new employee or as they embark on further study.

Skillsroad is set up to help you as you embark on this career journey together. From starting conversations early in their schooling focusing on what they might want to do when they finish, to sitting with your child and helping them to complete the Career Quiz and discuss their results, and helping your child to find a job. 

You’ll find everything you’ll need for all of these options at the links below:
