This report identifies effective strategies to tackle skills imbalances in the United
Kingdom. It provides an assessment of practices and policies in the following areas:
the collection and use of information on skill needs to foster a better alignment
between skills acquisition and labour market needs; education and training policies
targeting skills development and investment for individuals and employers; job creation
policies to develop skills through on-the-job learning; and policies facilitating
the entry of migrants with skills that are in demand. The assessment is based on country
visits, desk research and data analysis conducted by the OECD secretariat.
