AAT Survey Points To Continuing IAG Deficit In Schools

One in two students who are leaving secondary education in 2018 have said that they do not receive enough careers advice, according to a new survey published today by AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians). The AAT spoke with over 1,000 17-18 year olds who intend to leave school after completing their A-levels in the summer, ahead of the UCAS deadline for university applications on Monday (15 January). The survey revealed that university was the destination that they had the most knowledge of, with twice as many school leavers (72%) telling us they were aware of UCAS compared to the National Apprenticeship Service (36%). Only half (50%) had heard of the information provided by the National Careers Service. See here for more.
