The Federation of Master Builders reports that “skyrocketing” skill shortages mean that there are not enough workers available in all the key construction skills. The Black Country Chamber of Commerce says that skill shortages have reached “critical” levels; they are high in manufacturing and have never been higher in services. The CBI said yesterday that, for manufacturers, more companies cited skills shortages as a factor restricting output than at any time over the past four decades. Research for the National Institute of Economic and Social Research shows why we should be concerned. The research, in collaboration with the Centre for Vocational Education Research, shows a worrying decline in the proportion of employed people undergoing training. Over the past ten to twelve years, the proportion of workers who have undertaken learning activities in the previous thirteen weeks has dropped from nearly a third to just over a quarter. The duration of training activities has fallen, too, and is typically less than a week.
