Exploring Gender Differences in Careers Advice and Aspirations

As organisations which strive to give young people the best possible start in work and life, WorldSkills UK and the Careers & Enterprise Company partnered together to develop a better understanding of how gendered career stereotypes impact the career choices of young men and women.
