    Much of the recent discussion around employability skills in the postcompulsory education sector has been based upon a deficit model of young people. While peak industry bodies propound this view, there has been comparatively little empirical research into the attitudes of individual employers. This paper reports on part of the findings of a research project carried out in 2002 into young people and employability skills. [1] A considerable amount of data was generated that described employers' experiences of, and opinions about, young people as potential employees.
