Young People's Views on Literacy Skills and Employment
Clark, Christina; Formby, Susie
National Literacy Trust
Using secondary sources as well as National Literacy Trust survey data, this short report outlines how important young people think literacy skills are to their employment prospects and what skills they believe are particularly important. It also briefly outlines the important role that technology plays in the lives of young people and the degree to which this is linked to wider employment skills. A complementary report presents evidence on employers' views on literacy and employability. [For the complementary report "Employers' Views on Youth Literacy and Employability," see ED560637.]
