More young people could be encouraged to take carpentry courses

More needs to be done to encourage youngsters to undertake training, according to the EDI, which could lead to a higher uptake on carpentry courses.

Nigel Snook, chief executive of the qualifications awarding body, made his comments after the release of a survey carried out by the organisation alongside the CBI, which showed that employers are concerned by the lack of training among young people.

He suggested more guidance should be offered to youngsters about the options available to them, which may raise awareness of the value of carpentry courses.

"There is clear evidence that more practical, experience-based teaching programmes better suit the learning styles of many young people," remarked Mr Snook.

The EDI representative called for the government to develop a clear strategy in order for the next generation of young people to come into the world of work with good quality technical and professional training.

This month, the CBI highlighted how the number of individuals currently working part time in the UK because they cannot find full-time work exceeds one million.
