Young people are failing to find work because they lack ‘grit’, a minister has warned.
Nick Hurd insisted that ‘social skills and discipline’ are every bit as essential for success as qualifications – yet they are not being taught in schools.
The minister for civil society also said he was struck by the ‘crushingly low’ self-confidence of many youngsters and the effect this has on their employment prospects.
They also show initiative , speak up and feel confident enough to ask questions .
I wrote my ‘ Living The Dream’ MP3 as an addition to my Confidence Classes for Kids Workshops especially for. teenagers s & young people.
I believe s confidence can be taught not only caught from parents, teachers and people of influence around a young person.
What do you think of Nick Hurd’s remarks and how do YOU teach your kids to have deep inner confidence and self esteem?
