Inspiring Minds Parents and Guardians Virtual Events
From 8 February – 13 February we are hosting a week dedicated to providing information, advice and guidance for families who are looking to support students and understand the journey behind researching and applying for universities.
It will include a mixture of live and online resources, ranging from ‘How to help your child choose the right GCSEs’ all the way to ‘How to prepare your child for university’.
Attendees will also have an opportunity to book on to a series of live Q&A sessions to speak to members of staff and ask any further questions they may have about university and more.
