The Labour Party announced its manifesto for the 2015 election race yesterday. So what does it mean for school leavers?
The party has pledged to reduce university tuition fees to £6,000 a year - a £3,000 drop from their current levels.
For those who don't want to go to uni, the party promised to guarantee an apprenticeship for every school leaver that wants one - if they manage to achieve a set of minimum grades.
Previously, Labour has said many of these apprenticeships will be on the new High Speed 2 railway line, set to connect London to Birmingham by 2026, then Leeds and Manchester by 2033 - it's not being built yet though, so there may be a wait for those apprenticeships.
In addition, the party will demand that any firm that gets a large government contract to offer apprenticeships.
In terms of careers advice and skills, the party says it will offer face-to-face tuition to all school pupils, while making sure everyone in England learns English and maths until the age of 18.
The BBC found in a recent survey that cheaper education and more apprenticeships is important to 24% of young voters, so Labour stand to win about a quarter of the young vote if that’s the issue on which they base their decisions.
