This toolkit helps local areas produce high quality analysis of local skills and inform decision making on skills needs and priorities.


Skills Advisory Panels: analytical toolkit


The analytical toolkit will help Skills Advisory Panels (SAPs) in local areas to build robust evidence on local skills needs, wider labour market challenges and priorities to inform their skills agenda.

It sets out quality standards and a framework to enable consistent in-depth analysis of local skills systems. The evidence and action plans produced by SAPs will inform local industrial strategies, helping local areas improve their productivity and achieve their potential.

Alongside this toolkit, the department has released a document with a list of publicly available data sources to assist analysts to produce high quality local skills analysis.
