Closing The Gender Skills Gap

This report, published by the National Skills Forum, recommends the need for urgent action to close a 'gender skills gap' which is contributing towards a cost of between £15 and £23 billion a year in lost GDP, and to encourage more women of all ages into training schemes especially in traditionally 'male' sectors. According to this new report, educationalists should support initiatives aimed at removing barriers to better training for women. The recommendation include a trained, full-time careers coordinator in every school to ensure that young people are not making career decisions based on traditional assumptions about gender roles.
