THE RANKINGS

About

Created by the team behind AllAboutCareers.com, AllAboutSchoolLeavers.co.uk, MyCareerSpringboard.org and AllAboutLaw.co.uk, this is the first ever employer ranking in the UK to focus purely on school leaver programmes, Higher Apprenticeships and sponsored degree programmes.

With the recent increase in university tuition fees, and many employers looking for new ways to attract talented individuals earlier, there has been a monumental rise in school leaver programmes, Higher Apprenticeships and sponsored degree programmes over the past 12 months.

School leaver programmes, Higher Apprenticeships and sponsored degree programmes are structured training and development schemes for young people who are seeking a truly challenging and exciting alternative to university. Targeted at the UK’s most talented young people, these schemes are designed for school leavers with A-levels (or equivalent qualifications) who are keen to gain valuable on-the-job experience whilst simultaneously working towards a professional qualification or degree.

Our ranking reveals the very best employers for school and college leavers in the UK. By exploring these different employers and finding out more about their school leaver opportunities, young people are finally able to make fully informed choices about their future.

How does it work?

Our Top Employers for School & College Leavers ranking is based on employee satisfaction surveys completed by school and college leavers who are currently taking part in school leaver programmes, Higher Apprenticeships and sponsored degree programmes in the UK.

Within each survey, school and college leavers are asked to rate and review their company, their role and their experiences so far. An average score and percentage is then calculated for each company.

Each survey participant is quizzed on a variety of topics, including: job satisfaction, skills development, training, career progression, salary and benefits, company culture, level of responsibility, working environment, team relationship and work-life balance.
