Getting to know the workforce

Abstract

Despite much rhetoric on the need to match, or rather catch up, with other countries' capabilities, little has been added to the body of knowledge on the Scottish workforce. Thanks to ASCETT, The Advisory Scottish Council for Education and Training Targets, we have a fair idea of what our aspirations should be. But if we don't know where we start from, how can we know how to get there? This paper discusses this problem.
