What makes young people happy in the workplace? How do they see themselves progressing in their roles in the future? And who or what inspired them about their careers?Our infographic based on new research by City & Guilds Group has the answers.
Whilst over three quarters of millennials seek vocational training, only half as many (39%) look to academic qualifications to progress their careers. 42% of young people identify industry-specific training and apprenticeships as steps towards their dream jobs, and just under a third look to on-the-job training to secure their dream role. And it’s not just qualifications that pay off, but work experience too; a third of those surveyed attributed their current job to work experience in the field.
