Young people 'need training' such as plumbing courses

There could be increased interest in plumbing courses after a source suggested young people are not learning enough skills to secure jobs.

Matthew Freeman, head of young people and communities at employment and skills specialists Working Links, claimed that it can be "extremely damaging" for youngsters to grow up without enough training to develop their career.

In his view, it can lead to all sorts of problems, such as resentment, despair and potentially criminal activity, which suggests that plumbing courses could help a person keep their lives on track.

"We must therefore ensure that all young people can gain valuable employment skills, good references and training so they can meet the demands of employers," explained Mr Freeman.

He claimed that having a profession can help individuals to maintain a sense of self-worth and structure in their lives.

These comments follow a study by the Audit Commission entitled Against All Odds, which indicated a new approach is needed to tackle the growing number of teenagers who are ending up neither in education, training nor employment.
