Graduate vs. Apprenticeship earnings

A study by the ‘Million Jobs Campaign’ has looked into the earnings of graduates and compared them to Apprentices. It found that 39% of graduates have lifetime earnings below that of the average Higher Level Apprentice, rising to 46% for graduates from post 1992 universities. For some degrees, such as Media Studies, the figure was over 70%. However, a poll of 500 school leavers commissioned for the study found that only 6% said they were planning to do an Apprenticeship and more than half said they had no interest in Apprenticeships. The study was commissioned by Pera Training, a large provider of manufacturing Apprenticeships.  [ source: GTAssociates ]
