  • If we look at global competitiveness, the countries at the top – the USA, Switzerland and top Nordic countries - the world economic foundation states that Education and Skills investment is the key distinguishing factor. These countries have the largest percentage of 15 - 19 year olds in education or training. The UK is still just in the global competitiveness top 10, thanks to sound financial markets, a flexible labour market and relatively low unemployment. But the UK has a percentage of young people in education, 75%, that remains below the OECD average and countries like Brazil, Russia and China are catching up. (Top 10 list - USA, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Finland, Singapore, Japan, UK, Netherlands). (Key Paper - the Tomlinson Report - www.dfes.gov.uk/publications/14-19educationand skills) 1:00 (0:24:00)
  • Arguably, the education system isn’t helping young people prepare realistically for their future lives A survey of 10 - 19 year olds, last year, showed that they are not well informed about the world of work and are generally not able to make well thought through choices about their futures. CLICK At the age of 16, when they are making critical decisions, they don’t know what they want to do or where to get information. 1/3 never visit their school career centre, and there are few other options for getting an understanding of work generally, or an industry in particular. CLICK The survey also showed that they are most attracted to jobs with high profiles and perceived high salaries, even though they know little about these industries, or the reality of working in them. 0:40 (0:26:10)
