Careers advice for girls (document produced by the National Careers Service)

Your Daughters Future

‘Your Daughter’s Future’ was developed with the help of girls aged 12 – 16 who have a wide range of career goals, from politics to sport and midwifery. It sets out what support they want from their parents as they weigh up exam and careers options.

The guide offers parents information on which GCSEs and A levels to consider for different careers. It also contains tips on organising workplace visits to gain experience, managing exam stress and boosting confidence, with tailored information for different ages.

According to the Women’s Business Council, women remain much more likely to work in sectors traditionally regarded as female. 23.1% of women work in public administration, health or education, compared with 8.6% of men. In contrast, only 0.9% of women work in construction, (6.1% of men) and only 2.6% of women work in manufacturing (7.1% of men). This contributes to the gender pay gap. Too often it is because young women lack advice and support to get into these careers and have too few female role models in these sectors to help challenge stereotypes.

Why choose a career in STEM? (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) 

STEM jobs are expected to grow at double the rate of other jobs from between now and 2023.

There is expected to be a shortfall (less than needed) in the number of graduates and apprentices available to fill these roles.

Many STEM careers have salaries (amount you earn) that are higher than jobs in other career areas.

There is a huge drive to encourage more women into STEM careers.
