New publications are available at the Scout Report!

Demos: Publications: Scouting for Skills

What’s a nation to do when the service sector continues to rise? How can various institutions respond to increased employer emphasis on “character” and “employability skills?” A number of political leaders have called for schools to change the way they approach this issue and this working paper from the Demos group (produced with the support of The Scout Association) suggests that participation in certain key extracurricular activities might be the answer. The study notes that “participation in Scouts provides a range of soft skills, opportunities and networks that improve young people’s employment prospects in later life.” Visitors will find much to enjoy in this paper and it’s worth sharing with folks in the fields of public policy, human development, and workforce training.
