According to our research, workplace skills are now more important than exam results in the post-Covid jobs market as 74% of teachers say employability skills are now the most important way to improve pupils' careers prospects.

Therefore, initiatives like IGD's Feeding Britain's Future are vitally important to connect young people with professionals and provide training in essential workplace skills and will significantly enhance their prospects in an incredibly tough jobs market.
