Gender stereotyping starts in primary school and children’s career aspirations do not match workforce needs.

Drawings from over 20,000 primary school children show that skills mismatch starts early and career aspirations change only marginally after the age of seven.

London, 19 January, 2018 - Education and Employers, a UK-based charity, today launched a landmark report, Drawing the Future, which revealed that the difference between children’s career aspirations from age seven to 17 are marginal, and too often based on gender stereotypes and socio-economic backgrounds, and influenced by TV, film and radio. The report also shows that some sectors vital for economic health look set to be badly under-resourced in the future.
