Parents and carers
We recognise that parents and carers play a vital role supporting young people to make informed decisions about their future. We offer a comprehensive range of programmes, both in school and on campus, to support them with their studies and empower them to succeed.
Find opportunities to get involved if you work at NTU, from hosting work placements, to volunteering, to opportunities for your students to boost their CVs and enhance their university experience.
We provide many opportunities for NTU students too, from volunteering to the CERT Mentoring scheme.
