Skills Needs Analysis for Construction

ConstructionSkills was chosen to be one of four Pathfinder Sector Skills Councils charged with developing Sector Skills Agreement (SSA) for their sector.

The development of an SSA is a five-stage process that starts with a Skills Needs Analysis (SNA). The purpose of the analysis is to provide the evidence base to demonstrate what the industry skills needs are and whether or not current education and training provision, learning and qualification frameworks and funding models across the UK are satisfactorily meeting them.

The Skills Needs Analysis (SNA) for Construction is built on a well-respected programme of research and work with the industry over a long period of time. It represents a major exercise to bringing together all relevant sector intelligence and forecasting to provide a rationale for adopting agreed priorities for action and a basis for bringing about change in the way the industry goes about developing its workforce.

In addition to underpinning the development of the SSA the SNA Research Report provides partners with labour market analysis that was previously available in the Skills Foresight Reports.
