Students Starved of Careers Advice
A new survey has revealed that less than half of pupils in their final year of school receive enough advice on their post-exam options.
It seems that many students are being starved of good career advice and it has been suggested that half of the people who go to university are going because “it’s just the logical next step”.
Without good careers advice, students are unable to make well informed decisions and decisions are made that could negatively affect the careers they want to pursuit.
Recent figures show that one in five new graduates are not employed and have a hefty student loan to pay back. We need to ensure that young people are getting good quality advice. We need to educate students on what options they have as many are unaware of the vocational courses and apprenticeships that are available to them as an alternative to university.
