Ahead of A-level results day, new research from skills organisation City & Guilds Group (@cityandguilds) uncovers the serious impact of the pandemic on young people’s decisions about their futures – with more school leavers turning towards university as a default choice as uncertainty in the jobs market bites.
However, with data suggesting that university may not live up to career and salary expectations, and with many of today’s university graduates set to leave with tens of thousands of pounds worth of debt – City & Guilds Group is urging school leavers to consider all the options available when considering their next steps this August.

City & Guilds Group has today issued an urgent call on the Government to redirect billions of pounds of unspent and underutilised skills funding to help the newly unemployed get back into work as it releases new research on jobs and skills.
