The Young Enterprise Podcast
7 - Financial literacy, the apprenticeship levy, & the problem of debt among young people in the UK.
Dec 07, 2017
Elizabeth Kitcatt, Head of The Camden School for Girls and Martin McQuillan, Editor of Research Fortnight's HE publication, join Michael for the latest episode of the Young Enterprise podcast. In this edition, they discuss the growing problem of debt among Britain's young people, and what can be done at an educational level to help; debate whether those considering university understand the financial commitment of a student loan, and if tuition fees are deterring the poorest from applying in the first place; and address the UK's current skills gap, and the ways businesses might invest in young people's development as the country heads towards Brexit.
