A special TV programme for Year 13 sixth-form students on the graduate job market & degree apprenticeships.


Graduate Careers Live! is a new twice-yearly 90-minute TV programme, introducing sixth form students, their parents, and schools’ careers & university admissions staff to the graduate job market.

Broadcasting from a studio in central London, the October programme is specifically aimed at Year 13 students & their parents and will showcase many of the job opportunities, occupations and professions that sixth form students can aspire to in the future.

It will provide inspiration, information and practical careers guidance on how university – or one of the growing number of degree apprenticeships – can lead to ambitious, rewarding careers in areas like engineering, technology, banking & finance, law, accountancy and the public sector.

But which universities and degree courses are most-likely to lead to a well-paid graduate job after graduation?

Which universities do the country’s top employers target for their graduate recruitment?

And how can today’s sixth-formers use university – or a degree apprenticeship – to develop the skills and experiences that graduate employers are looking for?

The programme features employers, recent graduates, degree apprentices, recruitment experts, and the very latest research and insight on what it takes to be successful in the competitive graduate job market.

Special guests include Zoe Thomas, author of The Times & Sunday Times Good University Guide; Lindsay Conroy, head of apprenticeships at UCAS; and Sian Griffiths, education editor at the Sunday Times..

The presenters of Graduate Careers Live! are Martin Birchall, editor of The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers and Levi Jouavel, presenter of BBC Three's The Catch Up and a former BBC apprentice.

The programme will be essential viewing for all Year 13 students at schools & sixth form colleges across the UK, before they finalise their post-sixth form options and make their UCAS applications – or apply to employers for degree apprenticeships.

It is produced by High Fliers Research, in partnership with the Department for Education.
