Pastoral Care

  Pastoral Care – ensuring your child’s outcomes are positive in the workplace.   If your child has signed up to become an Apprentice or a Trainee, they are going to begin a journey that will be filled with inspiration, drive and perhaps some difficulties along the way. For some young people, they may feel alone for the first time. Whilst the independence may be a positive experience, it can also give them a strain of worry that they have not had before. This is why the CLC works closely with all trainees and apprentices, as well as with parents, to provide a level of ‘pastoral...
