Our annual Sector Skills Assessment (SSA) is an ongoing process to understand current and future national skills needs and the drivers of skills demand in the lifelong learning sector.
The findings include skills shortages and skills gaps, along with recommendations for addressing these issues.
How the findings can help you
- By knowing the skills gaps and shortages you can better prepare your organisation and workforce for the future.
- The findings enable you as an employer to plan and develop strategies to prepare for the challenges ahead.
- The findings can help you retain employees by providing them with the training and support they need – career paths, etc.
- Findings from the research contribute to understanding the sector requirements and to influencing the policies and programmes of the four governments of the UK nations.
There is an easy online survey which gathers information about recruitment and retention, skills of staff, training and workforce development and future skills needs. The survey takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and runs throughout the year.
