Labour Market/Skills Analysis

As the key driver of productivity, skills are vital to improving local economies. This might be related to general education and skill levels or to very job-specific skills.

We can help you get a good understanding of the skills needs of your local area or sector and how this matches with the skills of the local workforce and the available training provision.

The nature of work has changed rapidly in the last 25 years and will continue to do so at an ever-accelerating rate, so it is essential to keep on top of this issue.

Our range of work includes:

  • Forecasts of labour demand
  • Forecasts of labour supply
  • Occupational analysis of labour markets
  • Analysis of commuting trends and patterns
  • Mapping of training provision
  • Identifying skills and training needs
  • Evaluation of labour market programmes
