The National Record of Achievement was a document, in a nationally recognised format, issued to school leavers to set out their skills, experience and achievements. It could provide employers with a convenient and comprehensible record of what a job had applicant done and could do. This study, commissioned by the Department for Education and Employment, examined how employers were using the NRA, the ways they felt it could be improved, as well as the factors which inhibited wider use amongst employers.
