FSB urges GCSE students to consider next steps

As young people up and down the country get their GCSE results today, John Allan, National Chairman, Federation of Small Businesses said:

“The FSB congratulates everyone receiving their GCSE results today. As they consider what to do next, it’s important these young people are aware of the many different paths they can take towards a successful and fulfilling career.

“Schools should be helping students to understand the value of all the options available - including vocational learning, apprenticeships and university study. Good career guidance at this early stage is critical to giving young people the tools needed to make the right choice for them and their career ambitions.

“With their results in hand, now is an excellent time to seek out valuable work experience. This will help young people get a taste of which jobs they might be interested in as well as helping to motivate them to complete their studies and pursue their career goals.”
