How to help your child with subject choices
Choosing subjects that open up possibilities
Staying up to date with the changing school curriculum can be a full time job. As a busy parent, I know you don't always have the time to investigate all the changes. Being a parent myself, I know that it can be quite stressful to help your child choose their subjects in Grade 9 going into Grade 10. What if they take the wrong subjects? What guarantee do you have that they are making the right choice, given how fast the world and technology is changing?
In this master class I'm going to show you:
*How the right subject choice opens up possibilities for your child
*What the compulsory subjects are and how to choose the remaining elective subjects
*What is APS and how is it calculated by the different Universities?
*What to do when my child wants to change subjects during the first term of Grade 10
I’ve been in the assessment industry for over 18 years, working with corporate clients to select new recruits, bursary students, evaluating management and leadership potential. I studied psychology at Stellenbosch (BSc. Hons Psychology) and University of Potchefstroom (MA Industrial Psychology) and registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa as Psychometrist: Independent Practice. This means that I specialise in assessment and do not do any therapy. All the details are over on my Linkedin Profile if you need more information.
The majority of graduates and young adults I've worked with have indicated that they did not receive good career guidance at school. I hope to change that.
