Over half of young adults (58%) would prefer on the job training instead of going down the traditional college route, research from The Insurance Institute shows. Similarly, 55% of young adults would consider undertaking an apprenticeship if it were available in an area of interest to them.

The research surveyed 342 young adults aged between 16 and 34, as well as 435 parents of children under 18. Commissioned by The Insurance Institute, it was carried out by Empathy Research.
