Survey information

The survey, was carried out by Survation on behalf of BBC Bitesize Careers as part of their offering for National Careers Week. A series of new Bitesize Careers podcasts, hosted by Radio 1 presenter Katie Thistleton, have been launched to help young people figure out how to choose a job that’s right for them.

Strictly star Dr Ranj Singh has also swapped jobs with Radio 1 DJ Charlie Tee to show young people different worlds of work as part of a week long set of resources for schools and young people to use during National Careers Week. Giving his reaction to the survey results, Dr Ranj said: “Hearing today’s teens choose careers in medicine as their top choice, alongside their recognition of the NHS as their preferred employer, is truly heartening! I was about eight years old when I made the decision to be a doctor, I always had a fascination for science and wanted to do something to help people. It’s an incredibly rewarding career and it’s important that all teens feel like they can achieve their career goals, regardless of their backgrounds. That’s why it’s brilliant to be collaborating with BBC Bitesize during National Careers Week, helping the nation’s teens as they navigate through exams and career choices.”
