Mike Petrook, a spokesman for the organisation, said that employers need to work with schools and colleges to highlight the skills which pupils will need to develop throughout their education to boost their chances of excelling in the working world.
His comments follow the publication of a report by the Confederation of British Industry which showed that 44 per cent of employers have had to invest in training for school and college leavers to address a lack of skills.
Mr Petrook explained that pupils who have the ability to seamlessly integrate into a company after leaving education, such as those in sales recruitment positions, will enjoy far more successful careers.
The expert added: "Schools need to be able to educate pupils about skills that they need in the workplace, but in order for schools to be able to deliver on that, employers need to work closer with schools."
