Recent research by the The Prince’s Trust and HSBC have highlighted that students and their teachers feel that school doesn’t prepare young people for the transition to the workplace.
The Results for Life report revealed that 27 per cent of teachers think that their students don’t yet have all the soft skills required to do well after school, with almost half of young people who were asked (43%) feeling unprepared to enter the workforce, with many worried they lack the confidence and skills to succeed.
The SkillsCymru series of events provides young people with the opportunity to prepare themselves for their future by helping them to think about the variety of options available to them. The events also help parents and teachers by giving them access to the resources they need to support their young people.
