Futures for You comments on the Education and Employment Charity's research.

14th June, 2019

Research from the Education and Employers Charity has shown that students aged 14-16 who participate in careers talks by volunteers have increased motivation toward their studies and tend to achieve higher grades.

Interestingly, the study showed that careers talks are most effective in engaging those who previously showed less interest in school or who were on track to achieve low grades.

At Futures, we know how important it is for young people to engage with the world of work before leaving school and we encourage schools and education providers to take part in work experience and Industry Enterprise Days. These give students an insight into the world of work and an idea of the roles they might want to work in later in life.

For those who are approaching the end of school, we are holding a relaxed open day on Saturday 7th July.
