Campaign: To improve careers advice provided to young people

I feel like in our society young people don't get enough careers advice, guidance and support when they go from education into work. 

 

The careers advice I was given at school felt very generic. I didn't receive any proper guidance to help me into employment or enable me to find out what career would suit me best.

 

I made a film with Fixers to show other young people going through this that they're not on their own and that this is a widespread problem - school leavers and graduates can end up stuck in a rut because they're not being given support. 

 

I want my film to show that tutors and teachers are in the perfect position to steer young people in the right direction if they're unsure about their career paths, and I plan to share it in sixth forms and universities.
