A-level students 'need support' to find employment

A-level students 'need support' to find employment

Investment is needed if students are to be given the necessary help to find a job when leaving school.

That is the suggestion of public sector trade union Unison, which argued government cuts could leave A-level students without support.

With results received today (August 19th), many will be battling it out for places in the labour market and the organisation suggested the number of youngsters not in education, employment or training is set to continue rising.

"Careers services are crucial in providing advice for young people starved of choice, but huge cuts will see teenagers left without work," said Unison general secretary Dave Prentis.

The specialist pointed to the example of BT's 220 apprenticeship posts as evidence of a "scramble for places", as 24,000 people applied for the positions this week.

Unison recently warned £30 million could be taken out of the Nottinghamshire economy after government figures revealed local councils cut 3,000 jobs between April and June.
