How can I help?

  • Let your employees know that they can ask for time off to attend parent-teacher meetings. You can even consider, adopting a policy to recognise parent-teacher meetings as equivalent to a medical appointment in requesting time off work
  • Link with your local workplace literacy provider to make literacy support available to all employees who could benefit from it
  • Talk to your local school about providing work experience, or inviting groups to visit so they can see how their learning at school links to the skills they will need for work
