A-level results could lead to more IT home study

The latest A-level results could result in more people choosing to take up IT distance learning courses in a bid to boost their chances of getting a job in the future.

Official figures have revealed that it has been a record-breaking year for A-level students, with 26.7 per cent of entries receiving the top grade, while the pass rate increased by 0.3 percentage points on last year to reach a new high of 97.5 per cent.

However, with unemployment continuing to rise, there is a significant lack of jobs for young people and as a result many could choose to take a distance learning course to further improve their skills over the months ahead.

Such a move could increase their chances of securing full-time employment by demonstrating to prospective employers that they have gained further skills since leaving full-time education.

According to the latest figures from the Office for National Statistics, unemployment rose during the second quarter of the year, with young people most affected by the increase.
