    Interesting research into skill gap



    Just read a survey by the Institute of refrigeration
    and it has some interesting conclusions, if not unexpected.

    "Both graduates and apprentices entering the sector
    showed skills gaps across a range of 45 individual skills.
    These included core skills and principles such as identifying
    and solving engineering problems, testing & commissioning,
    acting with professionalism and integrity and designing systems
    to safety constraints."

    Sadly it does come down to a simple fact I think.

    Experience comes with time/practice.

    [Edit] Should add of course that it also comes from a good tutor.

    It also comes from having a professional attitude in the first place and not just attending college because they have to.

    The current City and Guilds exam regime does not help either - I have plenty of apprentices who go in to an exam and simply guess the answers and yet still pass.

    I know for a fact that there are apprentices who complete all of their exams and yet still do not know basic facts.

    Rant over.
