Skills Minister Anne Milton has just published a new article in FE Week entitled Ensuring young people have the ‘best possible’ careers advice. It is well worth a read if you are interested in the latest government thinking on careers.
Last March I wrote in FE Week about how important it is that schools and colleges let students know about all the amazing opportunities in technical education and apprenticeships there are after GCSEs.
It’s not just about higher education, and I’m determined to continue changing that perception. I don’t want one route to a career to be considered better than any other. A levels and full-time academic degrees at our world class universities are right for some people. But for others, T Levels, apprenticeships, or level 4 or 5 qualifications can give them the skills they need to get the jobs they want.
