Parent Careers Area

Research indicates that parents are the single greatest influence on their child’s education and career decisions. High parental engagement can have a major impact on the young person’s learning, so every opportunity should be explored to research and explore future career pathways with your son. 

As part of our commitment to prepare students for a rapidly changing world, we use an innovative online resource called Xello.

Xello is an engaging online program that prepares students for post-secondary success in academics, careers and life. The program puts students at the centre of their career and future planning experience. It helps them build self-knowledge, explore their options, create a plan, and develop the 21st-century skills needed to thrive in the world of work. Learn more about Xello at

How Wellacre is using Xello

Wellacre staff will use Xello within lessons to bring their learning to life - linking curriculum with careers. They will place careers learning and employability skills development at the heart of learning, giving students the opportunity to interact with employers through encounters and work experience, as well as putting what they learn in the classroom into a practical context. Using Xello, ee aim to ensure students understand the skills and needs of employers, so that they become more employable in the future. We also want to help them understand the opportunities available to them in further and higher education, so they can make informed decisions about their career.
