Skills are important

To help you make the best start on your career journey we've provided a number of tools to help you develop your skills.

Having the right skills is more important than ever before, as in less than ten years there will be very few jobs that require no skills at all.

As well as boosting your career prospects, new skills could be the first step towards that qualification you've always wanted to get. Skills are also useful in all sorts of situations in life, and can boost your confidence.
