Improving Skills Utilisation in the UK – Some Reflections on What, Who and How?

Monday, 20 February 2017

SKOPE Research Paper No. 123, August 2016, 

Ewart Keep, Director of SKOPE

The paper looks at the way that the UK has focussed on the supply of skills with the expectation that this creates demand for skills. There is little evidence to support this; industry is not pressed to change its production because of the availability of more highly skilled labour. Scotland is cited as the first to question this accepted basis for skills policy and recognise the need to create policy around the demand for skills and improved economic performance. The second part of the paper examines the challenges to improve skills utilisation.
