Today’s students have critical decisions to make about their futures. In Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland students can leave school at the age of 16, depending on when their birthdays fall. In England, students have a choice of educational options between the ages of 16 and 18:
• Stay in full-time education at college or in a sixth form
• Start an apprenticeship or other form of trainee activity
• Part-time education or training while working or being a volunteer for 20+ hours per week
Students have to start thinking about their futures and future directions at the start of secondary school not to make final decisions but to learn about the options, opportunities, training and, importantly, the costs, particularly the costs of higher education.
All of which is dependent on companies and organisations that will be their future employers to help inform students about the choices, the meaning of those choices and the implications for their educational interests.
Students can’t be interested in employment they have no knowledge about.
