Some school leavers are just not up to the job

Post by GD on Mon 19 Sep 2011, 7:58 pm


A STUDY aimed at developing a skills strategy for Guernsey has revealed that some school leavers have literacy and numeracy shortfalls, unhealthy attitudes to interviews and work and little interest in enterprise.

The Frontier Economics report compiled for the island’s Skills Strategy Development Group states that half of all jobseekers have no qualifications and struggle to hold down a job.

‘Many of those who are seeking work may not possess the basic numeracy and literacy skills that employers require… the practical skills we use to write job application letters, understand instructions, do mental arithmetic and read simple charts and tables.

‘They are seen by many employers as the absolute minimum level of skills that they would expect from employees.’ (from GEP)

I never had much of an education but have never been out of work for 35 years , but then it was if you could do the job, it mattered not if you could write a novel , recite war & peace or be a Carol Vorderman.
