Parents Information

Parental engagement is important to us, and there is opportunity for parents to get involved in Career 6 and become an active member of our community.

We will help keep you informed about your child’s progress by regular updates to our MILK app – this is an online planner, which takes away a paper based diary where learners timetables are kept as well as their progress in assessments amongst other useful information. Parents get their own version of this so they can best support their son or daughter whilst on their study programme with us.

Term dates

Please find our term dates below. We ask that no holidays are booked during term time as it is well evidenced that time away from study reduces achievement rates, and we want to support your child to achieve to the best of their potential – time away can make this more difficult.
