Boosting skills helps make job opportunities add up

More than a quarter of working adults have set a New Year’s resolution to learn new skills and one in five say their aim is achieving more in their career, according to a new poll of 4,000 adults across England.

The new poll conducted for the Skills for Life campaign explores people’s attitudes and barriers to getting the job they want.

The poll found more than half of those surveyed think being more confident with numeracy skills would create more career opportunities for them.

Aston spoke to psychologist Honey Langcaster-James and Ray Le Tarouilly, careers adviser from National Careers Service.
