I remember visiting my careers adviser once. I said to him I like drawing and he said "artist". That was the last time I saw him. My opinion is kids are not really given the core skills needed to get the job they want. How do you teach abstract things like motivation, self-esteem building, drive, perspective, opportunism, organisation, selling yourself or networking skills to kids? I'm just hoping they are given a better understanding of working life before they get out there and do it for real. *steps off soap box* If you have enjoyed this video in anyway, please give it a like and, if you think my channel is brilliant, subscribe and you'll get regular updates of what I'm putting up.

There's a new warning hundreds of thousands of school-leavers face a fruitless search for work this summer, as the recession continues to take its toll on the jobs market.

Sky's Alistair Bunkall reports.

There are two critical needs regarding employing school leavers 1) We need more employable school-leavers; and 2) Students need to be equipped to make decisions that will impact future careers. Schools and universities are producing graduates and drop outs who are difficult to employ and very expensive because their education is most irrelevant. Thousands of really good kids are falling through the gap and it's because the education system can't keep up with the rate of change necessary in today's 24/7 connected world. Video, interactive TV and games are turning teachers into expensive child minding service providers. Online university courses are popular because of we can now all watch the best of the best teachers in every subject. At last we can sack the dull and boring teachers and...
