CBI comments on Association of Colleges' career guidance report
The CBI commented on the publication of a report from the Association of Colleges showing many students are not receiving high-quality careers guidance.
Neil Carberry, CBI director for employment and skills, said:
“Time and again we find too many young people not getting the support they need to make informed choices on their future career.
“We need a new approach that supports schools and colleges to explain the routes open to young people, whether that’s A-levels and university or an apprenticeship.
“The Government must press ahead with the delivery of high-quality vocational courses and widen access to apprenticeships to tackle the skills shortages we face in the economy.”
