Kent and Medway Workforce Skills Evidence Base is published (May 2021)

Date: Wednesday 19 May 2021
Time:

Meeting Information:

Today (19th May 2021) marks the publication of the Kent and Medway Workforce Skills Evidence Base.

This document provides an overview of current and future skills demand in Kent and Medway, alongside an assessment of community needs and the ‘supply’ of skills in terms of the resident population’s qualifications. It has been prepared to inform the strategies, plans and funding decisions of key local and regional stakeholders. The analysis is based on an assessment of a wide range of existing data sets and published reports, as well as interviews with key stakeholders and a series of sector workshops with employers.

While the analysis includes consideration of workforce qualifications, skills are not just about a contribution to economic output. Instead, the report starts from a more comprehensive idea of ‘skills’ in order to recognise the importance to the economy and society of work that might be considered ‘low skilled’; to acknowledge that employer and individual skills requirements go beyond formal qualifications to also include a wide range of transferable ‘soft skills’, personal attributes, behaviours and attitudes; and to consider the wider importance of skills to the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities.
