Tomorrow's Leaders (March 2011)

CMI Tomorrow's LeadersThis paper presents the results of CMI’s Tomorrow’s Leaders survey in which we set out to examine managers’ perceptions about young people and the education system. Managers’ concerns about young people’s education are not new. Seventy-nine per cent of managers surveyed by CMI in 2000 agreed that failures in the education system are contributing to a skills crisis in the UK. A decade later, we wanted to revisit some of those issues.

The research was conducted in early 2011 in a period of rising youth unemployment. Nearly a million people aged between 16 to 24 years old are currently unemployed, equating to 20.5 per cent of the total. Amid widespread concern about their futures, it was timely to ask managers how they feel education could better prepare young people to enter the world of work.
