Welsh teens set sights too low, missing out on well-paid jobs

Welsh teens are setting their sights too low when it comes to future career paths according to research from City and Guilds.

Just 15% of young people in Wales are aware of the potential jobs available to them - the lowest figure for any part of the UK.

The study suggests that young people in Wales are failing to consider a large number of high-skilled and well-paid jobs and are instead over-selecting from a handful of careers.

Our research demonstrates that young people in Wales are not aware of the range of career paths open to them and as a result are setting their sights low when it comes to their career aspirations. They deserve to be made aware of the breadth of career opportunities in their home town both for their own sakes and to ensure the future success of Wales.
