They're taking a small proportion of the 0.7% unemployed that have been long term sick and giving them basic skills to get back into work.

Of which 99.99% are either unemployable or would rather suck shit through a tramp's pants that do a day's work. A fine scheme indeed.

But it looks like they are doing something and that's all they care about.

if we have such skills shortages why is the College and apprenticeship  training closed down for the summer ,  you would think that priority would be given  to getting people up skilled and filling the job vacancies  same with winter night school courses all targeted at hobbies rather then re skilling people  to improve their career and employment possibilities

Often wondered why we are churning out beauty therapists and hairdressers at a rate of knots when the island is crying out for tradespeople. Does no-one at the College speak to the Chamber Of Commerce or the Dept For Enterprise or whatever it's called these days?

I think that is more to do with the youth of today not wanting to do heavy manual work, no disrespect meant to youth.

30 Years ago if you were not academic you went into construction, now there are lots more ways to earn a crust than lifting heavy weights in all weathers on a muddy site.

Things are starting to come back full circle though. We have an over supply of labour we don't need forcing wages down and an under supply of the trades we are desperate for, pushing wages up.

Maybe some of the bloat could be hived off into vacancies in the Private Sector.

Been discussed (at least on here) many a time.

Utterly unsuitable both in relevant skills and attitude, most wouldn't last a day in the private sector before life in reality, as opposed to their cushioned, privileged public sector life, gave them a rude awakening.

Best thing CoMin could do would be to oblige each department of government to hive off non-core activities into an independent green/sustainable enterprise

Might be a worthy learning exercise for some

The trend is for occupations within the services sector, such beauty, hairdressing, retail and hospitality as opposed to construction and engineering trades. I’m sure the IOM before long will have an apprentice civil servant scheme, trainee and health and safety inspectors. I thought the green sector were producing all these wonderful high tech and high skilled jobs?

new targets include 

we’ll do what we can, perhaps one day, and confirming everything is more difficult than expected
