Turning out work-ready young people

From Nine To Noon, 9:20 am on 22 October 2015

The Chief Executive of the UK's Commission for Employment and Skills Michael Davis talks about the skills needed to best equip school-leavers and University graduates for the workforce. He recently addressed the New Zealand Vocational Education and Training Research Forum in Wellington.

The Forum looked at the skills and training needed to best prepare people for employment, liasing with policymakers and industry representatives. In the UK the Commission for Employment and Skills is an industry-led body, which provides analysis and advice to the labour market and aims to help training organisations to turn out people who are job-ready.
