Jade Jones has the skills she needs - but most of us think school leavers are not equipped for success, despite strong A-level performances.
A-level results show that the overall pass rate has improved slightly but there has been another fall in those achieving top grades.
Jobcentre workers are striking across Wales today over their conditions.
Wales could be on the brink of a youth business boom, according to a new report. A study by the Prince's Trust and RBS shows that a quarter of Wales' young people believe they will be self-employed in the future. Around a quarter also said they expect to be their own boss in the next five years.
Twenty-five percent of young people included in the survey also say they are thinking of setting up their own business.

"This research reveals an increasingly entrepreneurial mood among young people in Wales. Five years on from the start of the recession, youth unemployment remains high and many are seeing self-employment as a way to break the cycle of joblessness.
"Setting up in business can be tough - but at The Prince's Trust we have a 30-year track record of helping disadvantaged young people succeed in work and self-employment, no matter what their background. It is critical we nurture young people's passion for business and invest in the next generation."
More work needs to be done to make men and women equal in the workplace, according to a report from the charity Chwarae Teg.
It says that, although progress has been made, there are still issues over: stereotypes, childcare, and the differing amounts that men and women are paid.
Electrician Elly Davies spoke to reporter Nicola Hendy about her experiences starting off in the traditionally male-dominated industry.

Today's report will help us to take stock of the position of women in the Welsh workforce and highlight work that still needs to be done.
It is vital that we challenge stereotypes in subject choice at school and in the workplace and that this should begin at the earliest opportunity.
The costs and quality of childcare are a major concern for many parents who are in the workplace or who wish to work. The Welsh Government is committed to taking action to improve things for ordinary people and I am looking at ways to improve access to affordable childcare.
- Just under 80% of women said being a builder was more suitable for a man and around half said that being a plumber or an electrician was more suitable for a man.
- 78% of employers said lack of childcare affected a woman's ability to work fulltime, while they thought it only affected 48% of men's.
- 60% of employers think that further action by the state would help to achieve equality.
A report by an agency set up to for the economic development of women in Wales has found that while women have made considerable progress in the Welsh workforce over the past 16 years, there is a "mix of barriers" facing them that limit their contribution to the Welsh economy.
Chwarae Teg said the reason why a woman's progress may be hindered is because powerful stereotypes and assumptions about the suitability of certain jobs for different genders "shape women's place in the workforce".
The report, which interviewed 600 women and 400 employers, found that many experience a skills squeeze - they are more highly qualified and more likely to receive in work training than men yet they continue to work in lower skilled jobs and receive lower pay.
It added that affordable and accessible childcare needs to be more available for women who want to balance child care responsibilities and work because at the moment some women feel a lack of childcare hindered their business opportunities.
The agency concluded that for Wales to successfully compete on a global stage the skills and experience of working women needs to be better utilised.
The average employee in Wales works an extra 6.2 hours per week - adding up to an extra £735m-worth of value to the Welsh economy.
"That's a huge amount of hours," said Rhianydd Wiliams from Wales TUC.
"We're asking employers to recognise these extra hours and maybe looking at better ways of managing time within the office so that people feel they can leave on time or have a proper lunch break."
Welsh employers should focus on the work their staff produce rather than the time spent at their desks, according to the Wales Trades Union Congress.They spoke out on the ninth annual Work Your Proper Hours Day, where workers are being encouraged to take their entitled breaks and leave work on time.

Welsh workers are going above and beyond the call of duty each year by working extra hours. They often aren't recognised for this work or credited for helping their businesses and organisations stay afloat.
Employers shouldn't be pressurising their staff into doing more for less. A significant part of the hours of unpaid overtime worked every year could be wiped out by smarter management practices, such as focusing on the work staff actually do rather than the time spent at their desks.
A long-hours culture is bad for workers' health and their family life - whether the hours are paid or not.
People in Wales regularly work an extra 6.2 hours and don't claim overtime for it according to Wales' Trade Union Congress. Research, published today to mark 'Work Your Proper Hours Day, found half of all teachers, legal professionals and finance managers regularly work unpaid overtime.
The union says that last year 178,000 Welsh workers regularly put in extra hours for free with the hours of unpaid overtime equating to an additional £735million to the Welsh Economy.
