This report, commissioned by the City & Guilds Centre for Skills Development, comes at a critical time for the UK economy and its need for a highly skilled workforce. As the economy begins to recover, part-time, low-skilled work seems to be on the increase. If the economy is to successfully grow, the UK needs more skilled individuals and more skilled work. This report sets out outcomes of vocational education that, we believe, have not previously been so effectively articulated. We argue that these outcomes are what employers and customers value. If employers value these skills, and better skilled individuals make for a better workforce, then it is on this basis that an economy can grow.
