What really matters to future employers

Posted 27/07/2018

Ask any employer and they will tell you that educational qualifications are just an indicator of a candidate’s suitability for a job and that the real decisions are made based on life skills, passion, engagement, and social integration.

A highly qualified candidate who has problems dealing with criticism, for example, will always be passed over for a less qualified person who’s a team player and is capable of taking advice.

It’s therefore hugely important that we take care to ensure the development of 21st Century Skills in education in addition to the drive for better results.
