    All publicly-funded education and training should help recession-proof young people by providing them with 'employability skills', according to a report published today by the government's skills policy watchdog, the UK Commission for Employment and Skills. The report finds that although many schools, colleges and universities are preparing their students well for the workplace, provision is patchy and many employers have to spend time and money on new recruits to give them everyday skills, like answering a telephone correctly, or taking a message, how to write reports in English, rather than text-speak, or what a filing cabinet is for. After decades of discussions around – and definitions of – employability skills, employers seem to be more worried than ever that many job candidates simply don’t have these skills.
