By 2012 85% of jobs will require skills and competencies at or around Level 3. By ignoring opportunities to gain further qualifications at Levels 2 and 3, individuals are limiting the choice of jobs available to them in the future and increasing the likelihood of unemployment. Making sure employees are skilled is good for employers too. By raising individual aspirations to achieve higher level skills, employees will be improving their contribution in the workplace.
A better trained employee will have more confidence in their abilities, pride in the skills which they possess, lead to a better quality of service and a sense of self-assurance. In real terms this can sometimes be achieved by possibly improving their language skills and understanding of English, or through a better grasp of technical instructions, or of computing skills.
