AllAboutSchoolLeavers is a careers advice company that specialises in helping students leaving college find alternative options to university such as apprenticeships, school leaver programmes and sponsored degrees. We work with some of the biggest names in industry from large law firms like Mayer Brown and Kennedys, car giants Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar Land Rover and Volvo, the energy provider National Grid and financial firms PwC and EY. We have a database of over 10,000 schools and help over 2 millions students a year decide on their future career paths after school and college.
Last month, Radio 4 aired ‘The Forgotten Half’ – a shocking indictment of how we are failing young people who choose non-university routes into employment while prizing university above everything else.
A staggering 4.3 million UK employees report being unhappy at work – 13% of us nationwide – and over 15,000,000 days are lost per year due to reported mental health problems caused or worsened by work.
