Con­struc­tive ad­vice lack­ing

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY NEWS -

AP­PREN­TICES: Redrow’s lat­est re­search re­veals a lack of ad­e­quate ad­vice on con­struc­tion ca­reers and ap­pren­tice­ships in schools. In York­shire, nearly half of young peo­ple ques­tioned an­swered “no” when asked if in­for­ma­tion on ca­reers in con­struc­tion had ever been dis­cussed with them ver­bally by a teacher or had been made read­ily avail­able in ca­reers lit­er­a­ture. Young men were more likely to have been given ad­vice on a ca­reer in con­struc­tion, with 40 per cent hav­ing re­ceived this. Just 29 per cent of young women were in­formed. The gov­ern­ment is to im­prove tech­ni­cal ed­u­ca­tion with the in­tro­duc­tion of T lev­els.
