A teacher’s guide to result days

A-level and GCSE result days are just around the corner and whether you are new to the process or more experienced and looking for fresh advice, perhaps the following will help…

  • No doubt you say this to your students but the same applies for you too – as the day approaches, make sure you are eating healthy and sleeping properly.

  • Plan your day – make sure your phone is fully charged and pack yourself a lunch and refreshments to keep you going throughout the day. Don’t forget the tissues; it’s going to be emotional!

  • Tell students not to panic – no matter what their results, it may feel like the end of the world – it’s really not!

  • Signpost further good advice – it may be as simple as getting the student to talk to their parents about their results and how they are feeling. Perhaps, they don’t know how to start the conversation? Download our eBook A Parents’ Guide to Careers Guidance – it might help.

  • A careers education and guidance programme like Kudos can help by providing informed choices about careers that might suit them and helps students identify their interests and skills.  Kudos also boasts a wide range of features including live apprenticeship vacancies, post-16 and 18 courses, information on university courses and real-time live job vacancies.

  • Remember, this is the students’ day – there will be ‘ups and downs’ – but you have been with them throughout this journey –  stay positive, be proud and share their happiness.

Finally, students need to understand that their results do not define them and who they are. Whatever their chosen pathway, they have many options and exciting opportunities to explore to enable them to create their successful future.

Enjoy the remainder of your summer break.
