Abstract

Homes in on the skills gap in the UK, showing that in 1996 one‐fifth of 4,000 employees interviewed believed there was a skills gap. Highlights the 791 employees who believed this who were asked which skills were lacking, and uses a Figure to help explain the results. Refers to the fact that a large number of employers (988) stated there was a gap in skills among young people and uses a second Figure to emphasize this. Concludes that the problem in the UK is one of managerial failure as much as market failure — a lack of demand for skilled people.
