RSAs provide a robust evidence base to inform future investment in skills, for employers, partners and stakeholders.
RSAs provide a robust evidence base to inform future investment in skills, for employers, partners and stakeholders. SSAs look at current and future skills demand in the key sectors across Scotland. They focus on key strategic drivers, the economy, current and future demand and job postings.
The reports form part of the commitment from SDS in supporting employers, partners and stakeholders with skills planning, and in the current climate, access to this data is more important than ever.
The RSAs and SSAs have been developed by the Evidence and Impact team, with input from Regional Skills Planning Leads, Sector Managers, partners and stakeholders.
Lynne Robson, Head of Evidence and Impact at SDS said: “The latest series of Regional Skills Assessments provide a robust evidence base of skills demand across Scotland to guide and inform future investment. The RSAs are highly valued by our partners and stakeholders and have been developed reflecting their valuable feedback, now including more narrative, insight and trend analysis.
“Across key sectors, the Sectoral Skills Assessments continue to provide a consistent and trusted evidence base on current and future demand. The SSAs have retained their infographic style, with the inclusion of forecast data up to 2032 in a visually engaging format.”
Along with the RSA reports, the interactive data matrix provides data on skills supply, skills demand and skills mismatches, covering a range of geographical areas.
