Skills and training survey

A group of people sat around a table with bright, coloured icon discs.

Here in the West of England our low unemployment rate often means businesses struggle to find employees with the right skills. Our survey explores your organisation's recruitment, skills and training needs.

Our Business Training and Skills Survey 2017 is now closed and the results will be collated and pulished in February.  Read our 2017 Local Sector Skills Statements here

We’d love to hear how your recruitment, apprenticeship and training needs have changed and about any issues your business is facing, so we'll soon be launching our 2018 survey.
