The National Literacy Trust ‘Employers’ Views on Youth Literacy and Employability

In 2013, the National Literacy Trust and the All Party Parliamentary Group on Literacy are holding a joint commission to examine the links between young people’s literacy skills and employment in the UK.

This report looks at whether employers think schools are equipping young people with the literacy skills required for the workplace. It is primarily based on secondary literature sources and introductory conversations with a small sample of key employers and agencies (see bibliography for both). A complementary report presents evidence on young people’s views on literacy and employability.
