Skills Crisis Britain

Definitions of what constitutes skill has widened over the past few decades. Originally used as a label for skills training activities are required to work or education to be able to finish, machine tools for example. However, with the increase in human resource management from the additional elements are introduced. The first is the use of the term that is used in soft skills to summarize the characteristics of behavior and attitudes that individuals can or should offer. Examples include reliable, Analytical, drive for results etc.Another term adopted to describe the skills are qualities, such as discipline, honesty and punctuality. This is not a skill in the traditional sense, but it is important for the economy based on knowledge rather than manufacturing.

The market economy in the UK determined that individual human capital determines the value of the individual as an employee. Increased educational qualifications or training to help individuals to improve their human capital. Those who choose to ignore the opportunity to develop their skills based on their relatively low cost labor market.In capitalist economy there is the inevitable degradation and deskilling of work takes place as the search for efficiency and profit that drives a competitive market place. Using the Robotics and automation in manufacturing to the work previously carried out by skilled tradesman that is an example of a market economy deskilling.In responsibility lies for their own individual capital values. This answer assumes that all individuals have an equal opportunity to access development activities that increase their human capital. It can also be said that the variables of education, training and experience makes it difficult to put the right size or skills accurately. 

For example, a degree in media studies can not provide the ability to be moved to a role as a retail assistant.Qualifications could also lose value over a period of time, if they are not related to the skills needed to perform work activities. If the labor force remained passive their personal human capital, then they face deskilling place.In UK market has polarized workforce. On the one hand some people upskilled, there is an increased level of high level of qualification is given, while on the other hand some workers who either deskilled by technology deskilling or deskilling organization, so that the lower classes and enrichment facing relegation lost work.It is estimated that the trend of more complex work will requires a higher skill level as a result of shift work pattern of 'blue' collar 'white collar jobs'. However, one assumed that the service sector has employed skilled labor, and overemphasize the extent to which advanced technology requires a high level of employee skills. Skill-Increase the impact of new working methods therefore overstated, especially when taken out of the global debate perspective.Another blast qualifying for the study as a result of the tendency to give formal accreditation characteristics never considered practice. 

This is a significant criticism of the NVQ and the underlying argument that educational standards have declined Britain.The loss of traditional education and national training system in the early 1980s has left the UK with a hybrid approach in the work of Skilling poor labor market. With a basic level of adult education in the UK is difficult as compared to developed countries, socio-economic factors that lead to broader credit crisis and continue to move policy and training sector fragmentation is difficult to ascertain where the responsibility lies whether to reverse the skills crisis in the UK. Could it be that the UK needs to become more rigid in its approach to training and education standards LED organizational skills, along with countries such as Japan and Germany. Economy may not boast the flexibility of the UK labor market in terms of adaptation, but legislation in both countries making skilled labor is higher based on promoting long-term economic development.
