Careers Advice for School Leavers in Crisis
According to a new report commissioned by an Industry Apprentice Council fewer than one in ten apprentices found out about their job via a teacher or careers adviser with more than half saying they used their own initiative.
Julia Chippendale MD of EAL which established the council commented that the lack of support is a “crying shame”.
Skills and Enterprise Minister Matthew Hancock added: “Careers advice has long been not good enough, so we are strengthening the duty on schools to inspire, motivate, and mentor young people to fulfil their potential.
“A record number of people are applying for Apprenticeships, which are proving to be incredibly popular and we continue to drive up their quality and rigour, making sure they link directly to the needs of employers.”
