You can also check out the UK Commission for Employment and Skills’ (UKCES) Employer Skills Survey. This helpful resource looks at issues from vacancies, skills shortages and skills gaps, to training and staff development.
The results show that more employees received training in 2013 compared to 2011 – the equivalent of another 100,000 people. The survey took a sample of 6,000 businesses in Scotland. You can look at the results by area and by sector.
The fully funded consultancy service provides you with a detailed action plan that makes recommendations on ways to improve your skills base.
