Skills solution to growth hopes

Have your say

Solving skills shortages in the Sheffield City Region will unlock local potential and give the area a lead over other parts of the country, according to Sheffield Chamber of Commerce.

Commenting on a new British Chambers of Commerce study, Chamber executive director Richard Wright said: “There is an underlying confidence around future increases in employment, which is good. The fact that the available people do not have the right skills is bad.

“However, this means that any region which solves the issue will open up a real advantage and unlock a significant opportunity for growth.”
