Resolution posts profit and eyes new acquisitions

A-Levels not enough, say City bosses

first_img A-Levels not enough, say City bosses KCS-content Show Comments ▼ BUSINESS leaders have called for more young people to study for practical qualifications as well as traditional A-Levels to stand out in the increasingly competitive fight for jobs. Around 170,000 applicants are expected to miss out on a university place this year, despite a record 97.6 per cent of students passing their A-Levels yesterday. Director general at the Institute of Directors, Miles Templeman, reassured those who have missed out on university, and called on the government to extend its Graduate Talent Pool internship scheme to include school-leavers to cope with the shortfall in university places. “University is not the be all and end all. Not all courses will confer the financial rewards so frequently cited, and employers place just as much emphasis on wider employability skills as they do on academic qualifications,” he said. However, students this year have shunned new courses intended to teach practical skills. Fewer than 600 young people passed diploma courses yesterday, introduced in September 2008 as the Labour government attempted to refocus on hands-on training. “The diploma seems to have lost its way with a tiny number of entries and gender stereotyping evidence in the selection of courses,” said Christine Blower, general secretary of the National Union of Teachers.City firms such as Fidelity and PwC have taken on more school-leavers this year to help bridge the gap between school leavers and graduate-level jobs. The CBI also put an emphasis on work experience for young people, suggesting apprenticeships or part-time study for those who have fallen short of full-time degrees. “Although students may not have planned a gap year, the CBI is urging those that have missed a place at university this year to use the time to increase their employability,” said CBI director of education and skills Susan Anderson. Birkbeck College, which offers evening courses, saw a 22 per cent rise in 18 to 24 year olds applying for part-time degrees this year, while vocational body City &?Guilds saw 20 per cent more applications.A GRADUATE’S VIEWSIMON WARNERGRADUATING with an English Literature degree from a red-brick university sounds prestigious. But since leaving Leeds this summer, I get the feeling that you need more than an undergraduate degree to get a good job. Far from seeming indispensable, my degree feels like a pre-requisite, a necessity, and certainly not enough on its own.Yes, some companies have started offering rewarding jobs for people with only A-Levels, but this won’t take the pressure off most of us. The very best 18-year-olds will inevitably benefit from the schemes, leapfrogging those who go to university, but there will still be thousands competing for university spots and dwindling jobs. And at the other end of the spectrum, a growing number of employers demand postgraduate study or even more. I am getting a lot of encouragement to do further education, for example a master’s in something practical that could help my chosen trade (I’d like to be a journalist). I couldn’t do a masters without a degree. Without a degree, though, I could have tried to learn on the job and go from there. Would that speed up my career progress? The impression I get is no. I had such a good time at university it would be a shame to have missed out – it was an invaluable experience. For those who have the opportunity to go to university, and are wondering whether it’s worth it, I would say go. But on its own, it’s not enough to secure a good job.

Conservative politician Nicolas Dupont-Aignan said the bank should repay €1.7bn as “taxpayers shouldn’t be made to pay for financial speculation”. whatsappcenter_img KCS-content Share Show Comments ▼ Video Carousel – cityam_native_carousel – 426 00:00/00:50 LIVERead More Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Sports Direct in good shape

first_imgWednesday 20 October 2010 7:29 pm whatsapp Tags: NULL SPORTS Direct, Britain’s largest sport retailer, warned 2011 would be extremely challenging for all retailers as it delivered a trading update yesterday.The company, controlled by Newcastle United football club owner Mike Ashley, said group sales for the nine weeks ending 26 September were up 5.4 per cent to £295m compared with £218m a year earlier. Gross profit was also up 5.4 per cent to £117m, up from £111m a year earlier. This followed increases of 8.8 per cent and 17.8 per cent respectively in the 13 weeks, which included the sales surge from the World Cup.Retail division sales for the same period increased 6.9 per cent to £264m compared with £247m for the same period a year ago and retail gross profit increased 6.1 per cent to £105m, up £6m year-on-year.Dave Forsey, chief executive of Sports Direct, said: “Following the first quarter of our financial year which included the World Cup tournament we remain pleased with the continuing strong underlying performance across all our divisions.”Forsey added the group’s first half results would be significantly above the corresponding period last year and that the board remained comfortable with targeting a full year earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) of £205m despite the tougher conditions expected in 2011. Sports Direct will release its results for the half-year to 24 October in December. The trading update comes just a day after the Serious Fraud Office announced it had dropped its investigation into Sports Direct and JJB Sport over an alleged cartel with no charges brought.

GDP surprise keeps MPC on hold for now

first_img whatsapp whatsapp Show Comments ▼ THE Bank of England yesterday voted to hold fire on further quantitative easing (QE) and kept interest rates on hold at 0.5 per cent, in a move that was widely expected following the strong GDP data released last week.Prior to the publication of third-quarter GDP, which showed the economy growing at twice the rate expected by City economists, many had tipped November as a likely month for the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) to move. Since it is an Inflation Report month, the Bank benefits from fresh growth and inflation forecasts. These will be made public next Wednesday when the Bank’s Inflation Report is published.The decision not to follow in the footsteps of the Federal Reserve boosted sterling against a broadly weaker dollar, reaching an intra-day high of $1.6296.Many analysts still believe that the Bank of England will expand QE further in 2011.“A simultaneous launch of QE2 on both sides of the Atlantic wasn’t going to happen, but we still think the Bank of England will be forced into taking the plunge in 2011,” said Graeme Leach, chief economist at the Institute of Directors.ING’s James Knightley said: “The lack of credit availability, fiscal austerity and falling house prices are likely to weigh on activity and we do believe that the Bank will eventually follow the Fed down the route of additional QE.” He adds that this is most likely to happen in the second quarter with £50bn of gilt purchases spread over three months.The European Central Bank (ECB) also maintained the status quo yesterday, leaving the cost of borrowing at one per cent. In the press conference, ECB president Jean-Claude Trichet said he was confident the Federal Reserve still supports a strong dollar, after it committed to pumping more money into its economy via bond purchases.

Obviously they have got a localism agenda, but it seems to me quite wrong that in economically difficult circumstances I have got approaching £1bn of energy facilities that are held up in planning and that would be readily financeable immediately,” he said. Pennon issued the attack alongside its half-year results. Adjusted pre-tax profit rose 0.7 per cent to £96.2m for the six months to 30 September, beating a forecast of £91m. In a note to clients, Credit Suisse said cost savings at the group were impressive but unlikely to continue at a similar rate. KCS-content last_img read more

No InstallTaonga: The Island FarmZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen Herald US trade gap narrows more than expected Friday 10 December 2010 9:53 am whatsapp Show Comments ▼ The US trade deficit narrowed much more than expected in October, as exports rose a robust 3.2 per cent and imports declined slightly in the face of slackening demand for industrial and petroleum products.The trade gap totalled $38.7bn (£24.5bn), down from a revised estimate of $44.6bn for September, a Commerce Department report showed. Analysts surveyed before the report had expected the October trade deficit to narrow just slightly to about $43.6bn.The smaller-than-expected deficit could boost estimates of US fourth-quarter economic growth because it implies a larger share of US demand is being met by domestic production.“This suggests that the economy is accelerating,” said Neil Dutta, an economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in New York, raising his forecast of fourth-quarter economic growth to about three per cent.But one big reason the trade deficit is shrinking is “because we’re still in a slower-growth economy. You’d imagine that a smaller number would be a good thing, but it’s because people still have to contend with a slower economy,” said Robert Pavlik, chief market strategist at Banyan Partners in New York.US stock index futures held onto their gains after the trade data, while US Treasury bond prices added to losses. The dollar held steady.On an annual basis, the trade deficit has widened sharply this year and could surpass $500 billion when final figures for 2010 are available. Last year, in the midst of the global financial crisis which put a squeeze on world trade, the US trade gap narrowed about 46 per cent to $374.9bn.Record exports to China and Mexico in October helped push the overall export tally to $158.7bn, the highest since August 2008. Exports to the European Union and Japan also showed growth.Overall US imports fell 0.5 per cent to $197.4bn, led by drop in imports of industrial supplies and materials and the lowest petroleum imports since November 2009.Despite the overall drop, imports from Mexico were the highest on record and imports from Japan and the European Union were the highest in two years.Imports of advanced technology products also set a record.Despite record exports to China in October, the US trade deficit with that country in the first ten months of 2010 was $226.8bn, up 20.3 per cent from the year-earlier period.The sharp rise is likely to keep China’s trade and currency policies on the minds of US lawmakers in 2011. last_img read more
