Businesses should help schools boost careers education, says Teach First

Paul Woodgates, Head of Services to the Education Sector at PA Consulting, is quoted in an article in TES. The article examines Teach First’s The New Progression Report, written with the support of PA Consulting Group, which found that most schools in rural areas are struggling to develop employment partnerships.

The report highlights that interaction with businesses at school has a direct impact on how much pupils earn in later life, with evidence suggesting each employer contact is worth an extra 4.5 per cent in future pay.

Paul comments: “Businesses must be at the heart of developing the future workforce. By working with schools from around the country to provide job application and interview training to pupils from low socio-economic backgrounds, we’ve been able to boost pupils’ employability."
