Results of this year’s CBI/Pearson Education and Skills Survey show that companies are still anticipating a growing skills gap, with skills shortages holding back businesses across all regions and many sectors. This includes manufacturing, construction and professional services.
The survey also looked at business and education engagement and showed that links between businesses and schools have grown. 81% of respondents have had some links with schools and/or colleges and 55% have increased the scale of their involvement this year.
