Your Daughter's Future - a KS3/4 resource for parents of young women
A guide to help parents support their daughters as they make important decisions about their next steps and career choices.
Your Daughter’s Future is a guide the PSHE Association has developed on behalf of the Government Equalities Office to help parents support their daughters as they make important decisions about their next steps and career choices.
The guide sets out what support girls aged 12-16 said they want from their parents as they weigh up exam and career options, and complements PSHE provision pupils receive at key stages 3 and 4. We would suggest sharing the guidance with parents to accompany these lessons.
The guide offers parents information on which GCSEs and A Levels to consider for different careers, while aiming to ensure that young women’s decisions are not driven by tired gender stereotypes.
It also contains tips on organising workplace visits to gain experience, managing exam stress and boosting confidence, with tailored information for different ages. The toolkit contains 8 units that address different topics and age groups and can be read independently or together.
Your Daughter’s Future was developed in conjunction with Girl Guiding UK, Stylist magazine, the National Careers Council, and the Education and Employers Taskforce.
