inspiring the next generation

27 November 2012

The importance of skills and matching them to the requirements of the workplace, alongside tailored careers advice is high on the national further education agenda. The Skills Show in Birmingham brought these two aspects together on an inspiring day for young people.

The variety of career paths and routes into careers are opening up to young people, so it is important that the advice and guidance these young people get is right. It needs to ensure that young people are given all the information available about all different careers both vocational and academic.

Despite a drop in NEETs (young people not in education, employment or training) the number still remains high and dealing with the above issues is key to tackling this. Not only will it ensure that young people are skilled but will also help long term economic development of local communities.
