Growing Gap Between What Business Needs and What Education Provides - Forbes

Growing Gap Between What Business Needs and What Education Provides - Forbes | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it
There are all sorts of reasons to get an education. It gives you perspective on the world, it makes you a complete person, and of course most importantly of all, it helps you build a career.

 

McKinsey just published a groundbreaking study of the impact of education on employment (“Education to Employment“), and it demonstrates the challenging mismatch between our educational system and the job skills employers need.

Simply said, this is a great article!

Allan Shaw's curator insight, February 17, 2013 12:38 AM

Perhaps our time, the here and now is redolent of times gone past where education had to face significant public criticism and attempt significant adjustments. The early 20th sentury in the USA was such a time.  Educators need to lead from a firm values base and in line with what is best for students.

Lou Salza's curator insight, February 18, 2013 7:01 PM

1. The paradox of high unemployment and a war for talent continues.

We don’t have a jobs crisis in the world, we have a skills crisis. Some clear evidence from this report.

45% of US employers say lack of skills is the “main reason” for entry-level vacanciesOnly 42% of worldwide employers believe new graduates are adequately prepared for work.

This data echoes the data we hear regularly from clients. Companies need to invest heavily in internal development programs to stay competitive. Our research shows that the training industry grew by 12% this year, the highest level in 9 years.

This research also shows that employers would be willing to pay new workers 22% higher salaries if they did have the skills they need. Employers want “ready made” employees.

2. Worldwide educational institutions are out of sync with employer needs.

While 42% of employers believe newly educated workers are ready for work, 72% of educational institutions do. This is an enormous mis-match. Primary and secondary educational institutions are not keeping in touch with corporate recruiters and the needs of business.

Again our research validates this completely. Most of our clients are investing heavily in new corporate universities, onboarding programs, and what we call “continuous learning” programs. In fact the L&D industry is in the middle of a renaissance, as companies try to reinvent all types of training around new internet technologies.

3. Students don’t perceive that traditional education methods drive job skills.

The #1 cited way (60%) students believe they learn skills is through “on the job training.” (Our reserach shows that 72% of business managers say the same thing.) 58% cite that “hands-on learning” is best.

Lectures are the lowest rated learning method (30%) tied with “traditional online learning” (30%).

Unfortunately most colleges still rely heavily on lectures and the “for-profit” distance learning institutions rely heavily on “traditional online learning.” (Only 24% of academic program graduates say that they use hands-on learning in their program.)

How To Get Along With Losers | Empower the Leader in You

How To Get Along With Losers | Empower the Leader in You | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it
It takes mental toughness to face the negative attitudes of losers who blame others, hate hard work, and don't try to improve themselves.

 

Positivity is the ability to look reality in the face and not flinch. It is not sugar-coated phrases or optimism that insists circumstances will change.
