£90bn cost of bad careers advice to UK GDP

Research conducted by Kier Construction, surveying 2,000 parents, teachers and careers advisers, has found that poor careers advice may be costing the UK £90bn per year. Parents were particularly disparaging about the quality of advice offered in their children's schools, with 74% of parents claiming that careers advisers were too focused on academia, and 68% feeling that their children did not receive enough careers advice. This was backed up by the finding that 65% of pupils received no careers advice at all between the ages of 11 and 13, and 27% of 13 to 15-year-olds received only one hour during their time at school.
