Parents and Carers

Parent/Carer Website Information

Here at Summerfield Education Centre, we are committed to working with you and your child on their career journey, exploring a wide range of options and experiences, building their employability skills to ensure their pathway to success.

At Summerfield Education Centre, we recognise that not every pupil may know what they want to do for a career. We will support each pupil to explore a range of different career options based on their individual interests, including; apprenticeships, employment, training, college and university.  We will give your child the opportunity to build further skills that will support them in their next steps.  At Summerfield Education Centre our aim is to work with you to ensure that your child gets the best support on their career path to a bright future.

In the Spring term (date to be confirmed) we would like to invite you to a Careers information session so you are able to better understand the destinations after Summerfield and to discuss Careers specifically.

On our Careers Plan you can see what we have organised for your child to take part in. Please do not hesitate to contact the school or Maria Galbraith on 0121 779 8090 or  s509mgalbraith@summerfieldec.solihull.sch.uk  for any help or guidance you or your child may need.

We always need contacts and experiences (career talks, workplace tours, work experience) in business, this helps develop the pupils understanding and knowledge of the world of work. If you would like to talk to us about how you could help please get in touch!
