Careers advice 'should be built into education'

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) is urging the government to incorporate information and guidance about the working world into education programmes, citing skills mismatches, generalised careers advice and young people unprepared for the job market as reasons for doing so.

During their formative years, students who do not have enough information made available to them regarding different job sectors may find themselves studying inappropriate or inadequate subjects.

By improving links between various job sectors and educational institutions, the CIPD believes that students will be able to hear more about the various career paths available to them - and how to pursue them - from the employers directly.

The Learning to Work report issued by the organisation found that 61 per cent of employers expressed an interest in becoming more involved with students in this way, but that they needed opportunities to be created for this collaboration to come about.

Despite having revealed that businesses indeed recognise the importance of tackling unemployment among young generations, the survey also found that a quarter have in fact not employed anyone aged 16 to 24 in the last year.
