Jobs and skills

We need to be taught about important life skills that will help us as we become adults.

We need to learn about personal issues such as how to have healthy relationships but also practical life lessons, particularly financial education, so we know how to manage our money.

We want better careers advice so we know more about what jobs might suit our talents, particularly with new tech and AI changing the workplace.

That means more teachers getting better careers training. All schools should be supported by careers hubs to help us get on the right path after school.

Is university right for us, or an apprenticeship, for example, to land us our dream jobs? We want apprenticeships to be funded and available to all school leavers who want one.

Schools should bring in local employers and businesses so we understand the opportunities around us.
