Candidates forget vocational qualifications on CVs
Although 71% of employers rate staff with vocational qualifications as essential in improving the competitiveness of their business, only 29% of adults declare their training on CVs.

Recent research from the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) found 37% of employees with vocational qualifications were being awarded a higher salary than those without who were doing a similar job. And 71% of the workforce thought that those with vocational qualifications were better suited to the workplace than degree graduates.

In the recession, 72% of the employees surveyed with vocational training think it is of more benefit to them now than ever before. But 18% of them forget about the qualifications they have achieved.

Therefore when selecting new employees, remember to ask candidates to include their vocational qualifications on your application form. If you use CVs then ask about vocational qualifications at interview – you may find that this will help you establish the best-choice candidate for the role.
