According to a survey of 4064 jobseekers in 2010 by Home Learning College and Reed.co.uk, around one-third of job applicants were finding that a lack of qualifications was holding them back. 

Around 50% were resorting to further training to update their skills with ambitious job seekers finding that targeted vocational training added value to their CVs.

Higher education does not guarantee success, and the survey found that 1/5th of graduates believed that their degree had not increased their employability.

Around half of those who took part in the survey were unemployed.

Another recent research project (CEBR) identified that 20% of new graduates are unemployed.

52% of all graduates were either unemployed or in non-graduate jobs.

Applicants with Vocational Level 4 skills, had equal prospects to graduates.

So the clear message is, decide what vocational skills you are lacking and then "skill up".
