Careers Information Links
With the eye-popping price of tuition fees and the worry of graduate unemployment, ambitious school leavers are thinking of new ways to jumpstart their careers without going to university.
In response to this exciting development in the job market, the team behind AllAboutCareers.com has created AllAboutSchoolLeavers.co.uk, a website with jobs and careers information which is dedicated to educating young people about school leaver programmes, apprenticeships and other genuine alternatives to university. They have also recently launched a brand new website called AllAboutApprenticeships.co.uk, which will host the very best apprenticeships that young people can apply for today. Students will also be able to search for opportunities by location, industry, and apprenticeship level.
