Young People: Fix Up, Look Sharp says Ofsted Chief

OFSTED shirt

OK, maybe Sir Michael Wilshaw didn’t quite say that, but words to that effect:

“Far too many young people are lackadaisical in the way they present themselves for work…If they dress inappropriately, speak inappropriately and have poor social skills, they are not going to get a job.”

This has left young people ‘sloppy’, both in how they dress and how they act. While Sir Wilshaw’s tone may echo the tired remarks of your secondary school deputy head, he’s talking from a wealth of experience which warrants taking his words on board.
