Fear of Lack of Skilled Scientists & Engineers

Science Jobs, Engineering Jobs, UKAccording to the Independent, up to half of employers have reported that they are having difficulties recruiting suitably qualified candidates to their science, technology and engineering jobs.

According to the poll which surveyed 700 employers, A level subjects such as physics and chemistry would be the best subjects for students to choose to help boost their prospects of getting a great science job.  The importance of studying science to degree level was also emphasized by companies within the scientific industry.

Nigel Snook, chief executive of awards body EDI, which helped compile the report, said: “This year’s CBI/EDI education and skills survey highlights the importance of creating a clear strategy for vocational education and training which links the development of basic employment skills all the way through to the achievement of high level technical, professional and managerial qualifications.

“The transition from school, college or university to the world of work is still one of the most challenging stages in many people’s lives. Despite the fact that employers and government invest considerable sums of money and effort in this area, the survey demonstrates there is still work to do to more effectively harness these resources.

“In particular, there is clear evidence that more practical, experience-based teaching programmes better suit the learning styles of many young people, especially those who are likely to continue their education and development through vocational opportunities.

“The findings also suggest that there would be real benefits from improving the guidance given to young people on the options available to them, and simplifying the contribution of employers to work experience and apprenticeship programmes.”
