NEWS IN FOCUS | SE02EP13 Education: What’s next for the class of 2017

With the school bell about to ring and signal the start of a new academic year, tonight’s News In Focus with Craig Priest takes a look at what’s next for the class of 2017.

Recently youngsters would have received their GCSE or A-Level results, and as a result will be taking a look at what steps to take next, will it be college, will it be university or will an apprenticeship prove appealing?

This week’s program speaks to a former apprentice at Nottinghamshire County Council who studied at degree level but did so whilst earning, giving her an advantage when it comes to seeking full time employment.

Elsewhere we hear from Childline on how the increasing pressures on youngsters has led to further calls to the service with youngsters unable to cope, whilst a new study also shows that what parents and youngsters want for their futures, can be entirely different.

Join Craig Priest for more at 6pm.
