It is the intimidation factor
Look at most of the career postings not only in Great Britain, but inside the United States. You have to have a certificate list as long as your arm and 3 to 5 years experience in every platform known to mankind. People are intimidated with the requirements and the certifications are expensive. If you do not have enough skilled workers then start an in house training system for entry level positions so they don't have do get all of those certifications all at once and don't have to have all of those years of experience. It is like we say in the Army, we don't get new Soldiers, we grow new Soldiers.
