The City and Guilds Vocational Rich List proves that university is not the only option open to young people when it comes to forging a successful career.
That is according to Chris Jones, chief executive officer at City and Guilds, who claimed that there are many people on the list who chose vocational training and skills education at a young age and have reaped the rewards of doing so.
Among those to make the top 100 are Dragon's Den judge and leisure magnate Deborah Meaden and JCB billionaire Sir Anthony Bamford.
"The list not only celebrates the success of Britain's leading business men and women, but also serves as an inspiration to others to discover their talent and unlock their potential through vocational education and skills training," Mr Jones stated.
Ms Meaden said that the right skills and attitude are what is required to be a success in the business world.
Vince Cable recently claimed that the manufacturing industry offers ample opportunity for young people to enjoy a successful career.
