Support for Parents

At The Engineering College, we treat your son/daughter as a young adult, and have expectations from them (listed in the Student Charter). In return, we provide them with an opportunity to learn from a team of experienced engineering tutors and develop skills for a long-term career in the engineering industry.

We value the relationship we have with our students, employers, parents, carers and guardians, particularly the parents / carers and guardians of students aged 16-18 years old. We actively encourage parents to get in touch if any enquiries or issues arise over the duration of the programme.
