Special TV programme for Year 12 sixth form students that is being broadcast on Thursday 27th April.

Graduate Careers Live! is a new twice-yearly 90-minute programme that will introduce sixth form students, their parents, and schools’ careers & university admissions staff to today’s graduate job market.

Broadcasting from a studio in central London, the April programme is specifically aimed at Year 12 students and their parents – and will showcase many of the graduate job opportunities, occupations and professions that sixth form students can aspire to in the future.

The programme will provide invaluable inspiration, information and practical careers guidance on how university – or one of the growing number of degree apprenticeships – can lead to rewarding careers in areas like engineering, technology, banking & finance, law, accountancy, the media and the public sector.

But with employers currently receiving an average of 40 applicants per graduate job – and fewer than a third of the country’s undergraduates now securing a job offer by the time they leave university – choosing the right university course or degree apprenticeship has never been more important.

Featuring employers, recent graduates, degree apprentices, recruitment experts, special guests and the very latest research and insight on what it takes to be successful in the highly-competitive graduate job market, Graduate Careers Live! is being presented by Martin Birchall, Editor of The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers.

It will be essential viewing for all Year 12 students at schools & sixth form colleges across the UK, just before they begin considering their post-sixth form options, visiting universities and researching degree apprenticeship opportunities.

The programme is produced by High Fliers Research, in partnership with the Department for Education.

Year 12 students and parents can watch the first programme on Thursday 27th April – live at 2pm – or on ‘catch-up’ afterwards.
