European e-Competence Framework - Home Home - Future Morph British Chambers of Commerce - The Workforce Survey: Small Businesses The majority of the UK’s small businesses want to grow. They want to invest and take on more employees, but they are also pessimistic about the UK labour market’s skill level and flexibility. Businesses tell us that their ambition to grow will be severely frustrated by the difficulties they face in doing so. Dismissal rules are too complex, tribunal cases are endemic, and the vast majority of small firms are buying in extra external resource to ensure they are compliant with employment regulation.

Getting Girls Interested in Science Author: Suzanne Elvidge BSc (hons), MSc - Updated: 24 August 2012| Traditionally, science - particularly chemistry and physics, as well as maths, computing and technology - has been a male-dominated area. Girls may not be interested in science as a study or as a career because they think it is too hard, or do not want to do something where they might be the only girl in the class. So what can be done to encourage more girls to get interested in science? Encouraging Girls into Science Parents can encourage girls to be interested in science – perhaps by going to science and technology museums at the weekend or during school holidays, by watching television programmes or listening to radio programmes about science, or by talking about science stories on the news. There are lots of books, magazines and websites about science, both serious and just for fun, that can help get and keep girls interested in science.
