Although many young people have not sat formal exams due to the Covid pandemic, this is still a nervous time as they wait for their results.

So, we want to give families the chance to share how proud they are of the hard work their loved ones have put in, despite the difficulties they have faced.

It doesn’t matter whether the student in your life is receiving GCSE or A-level results, has completed a degree, finished an apprenticeship or achieved their vocational qualification at college.
