Almost half of girls opt for university despite only a third of jobs requiring a degree?


Who really needs to go to college?

Only 29% of UK jobs typically require a degree level qualification. This means young people could be setting themselves up for unnecessary debt without a clear onward trajectory. With young people basing their education choices on perceived, rather than real, career prospects, City & Guilds is urging schools to provide robust careers advice based on current labour market insight to ensure that young people, parents and teachers are aware of the full range of career options available.
