Families

Very often children look to their parents for guidance on subject choices, degree courses and careers, but the parents we speak to rarely feel qualified or sufficiently up-to-date to help their children explore the options available to them. That’s why they turn to Tinker Tailor.

Thank you so much for all your help. Anna has learnt so much from you – she is now so positive about applying for jobs and about what lies ahead. You have made such an impact.

Wherever your child is on the path from education to employment, Tinker Tailor ensures they are asking the right people, the right questions, at the right time.

What makes us stand out is our knowledge of university and apprenticeship applications, and our understanding of what employers are looking for.

Our fresh and holistic approach to careers has helped numerous young people (and often entire families of siblings) open their eyes to the huge range of jobs on offer.

How we work with families

I honestly don’t know how to thank you for all you have done for T. I hope he has let you know that he has now found a job in insurance underwriting. Without any doubt at all it is entirely due to your advice and direction. I am so grateful to have found your company and I will be sending my three girls your way when the time comes!

Our daughter’s final personal statement earned this comment from her Biology teacher: “Well, if Bristol don’t want you, I can’t imagine what they are looking for.” She got three offers within a week, including two from Bristol - her first choice. Honestly, we would have been lost without Tinker Tailor.

Your help and advice on submitting the UCAS application early was invaluable, and Jamie is now sitting on four very realistic offers from four great unis. His confidence is also in a much better place thanks to all your wise advice!
