Detail

This report draws on the Employer Skills Survey 2011 and Employer Perspectives Survey 2010 undertaken by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES). The data is analysed to examine skills gaps, training behaviour, and skills shortages in urban and rural areas. The report looks at the size and types of businesses to see if there are particular characteristics and behaviours in skills and training patterns.
