This new survey by Logicalis UK reveals the education and career choices, expectations and concerns, of 13-17 year olds from across the UK. Key findings from the survey reveal deep-rooted fears about the value of education versus employment prospects. Many of the teenagers surveyed expressed serious concerns about getting into debt to subsidise their studies, and questioned the value of education. The survey also suggests that this generation of 13-17 year olds (the Realtime Generation) is planning ahead and offsetting these fears by choosing traditional academic subjects such as science, IT and engineering, which they associate with better career prospects.
