Careers education given to pupils in secondary school can be linked to higher earnings in adult life, according to research by the University of Bath on behalf of the Education and Employers charity.
The research looked at nearly 6,000 pupils and found that 14 and 15 year olds attending at least six career talks earned an extra £2,000 a year. Being a better informed teenager meant they made more advantageous career choices.
Around 50 schools and colleges across Kirklees, Calderdale, Bradford and Leeds have chosen our professionally qualified and experienced careers advisers to work with their students on making sense of the range of choices available to them. Our advisers deliver a variety of talks, organising careers events and bringing employers and students together to discuss relevant routes and qualifications into employment, including what potential employers value the most.
C&K Careers also organises area events with Calderdale and Kirklees Councils, where young people can attend question and answer sessions with employers.
