The Council's aim is to reduce the gap in skills and this has been done successfully over the last 2 reporting periods. This data is made available to us 2 years in arrears. Please note that this measure previously featured a target in error. This has now been removed and the measure has changed to ‘Monitoring Only’.
The last reported data in December 2016 saw a further decrease in the Employer Skills Gap to 27%. Reducing the skills gap helps ensure businesses have access to the workforce they need and residents are able to secure local jobs.
