CBI: Schools need to change

It is becoming increasingly difficult for businesses to attract the kind of job candidate they need and as a result the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) is calling for a shake-up of the current education system.

In a new report, the CBI has said that the current school system fosters a cult of average and fails to stretch those who have the potential to offer the most to employers.

"Businesses have traditionally focused on education at 14 plus, but it's clear we need to tackle problems earlier, instead of applying a sticking plaster later on," said John Cridland, director-general of the body.

The CBI believes that raising educational attainment levels in the UK so they are the best in Europe could boost gross domestic product by more than £8 trillion over the lifetime of a child born today.

Mr Cridland added that qualifications are important, but self discipline and the ability to serve customers well is what employers need.
