UKCES has issued a new guide to work experience for employers.
Young people who get early experience of the world of work are significantly less likely to end up unemployed, get better jobs and earn more money. Employers who offer work experience also enjoy major benefits. We’ve put together a guide that explains just how important it is for businesses to inspire young people, busts some myths that have been putting employers off and gives advice on how to go about offering work experience.
29% of employers say that experience is critical when recruiting young people and a further 45% say it is significant. Despite this, only 27% of employers offered work experience in the past year.
The report is about helping employers to engage with young people.
