You’ve done your research, gathered the facts and decided what’s next from a career perspective. Boom, alternative career path here you come! But hold your horses, there’s a problem – your parents hate the idea. What do you do?

This episode unearths the world of parental preconceptions when it comes to the next skills step. We ask: Are parents doing young people a disservice by not gathering all the facts?

What better way to do this than meet a former degree apprentice, Amar, and his mum, Bhupinder, to take us through what it’s like to break down parental judgements in order to follow a career path with a difference.
