Quick survey

A recent UK survey indicated that since the government scrapped compulsory work experience for teenagers (14-16 year olds) in 2012 a number of schools have either stopped offering or enforcing it with over 37% of teenagers having done no work experience at school. KPMG also stated that more than 40% of employees in financial services jobs had parents who worked in the same industry, compared to an average of 12% across non-finance industries. Tell us:
Do you think work experience would be a benefit to 14-16 year old teenage students in the UK?
Does your firm host work experience students currently?
Where do most of the work experience students come from who have a placement at your firm?
