The majority of young people in Britain are concerned about getting into debt and their future job prospects, according to new research.
The survey by Young Enterprise found that only 52% of people between the ages of 14 and 18 think that in the future they will be financially better off than their parents.
Of those questioned 56% said they are concerned about their chances of getting a job and 67% are worried about being in debt in the future.
Two-thirds (64%) of 14-year-olds questioned thought that their school had successfully prepared them for the working world, while only 54% of 18-year-olds felt the same.
Overall just over half (59%) of the teenagers were positive about how successfully their school had prepared them.
Most of the respondents (69%) thought that their opportunities in life would be influenced by their parents' financial circumstances.
