'Graduates lack practical skills'

Published: Tuesday, 23 March 2010   Category: All Graduate job news

Recent university leavers looking for the latest graduate jobs and courses may be interested to hear the view of a digital media consultant who claims that there is a lack of serious industry related vocational qualification.

Paul Brindley, chief executive at Music Ally said that his industry experiences correlated with the findings in the Skillset survey which claimed that the creative media industries are lacking sufficient skilled graduates.

He added: "I would completely concur that more training is needed in digital and technology related issues. No doubt more training in management and leadership is also needed.

"Unfortunately right now one of the best ways of learning is on the job itself but we would all benefit from being able to access a larger pool of well-trained digital graduates."

Figures have shown that graduates now make up 73 per cent of the workforce, compared to 66 per cent in 2003 and that more than half (53 per cent) of all degrees held are media-related.
