Our Workforce, Our Future Report By West College Scotland

EDM number 1709 in 2017-19, proposed by Ronnie Cowan on 16/10/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Business support, Companies and Employment.

That this House welcomes the publication of the Our Workforce, Our Future report by West College Scotland; notes that the report contains the findings of the West of Scotland Skills Survey 2018, the first research of its kind to be conducted by a college or university in Scotland; further notes that 231 organisations, employing more than 65,000 people, in and around the West of Scotland responded to the College's survey, including SMEs, well-known regional organisations and FTSE-100 listed companies; acknowledges that among the College's key findings is that employers reported workforce planning as the number one challenge they face and that the skills gap was identified as the single biggest barrier to growth; understands that the College will use the findings of its research to inform their work to futureproof its curriculum and employer engagement; and commends West College Scotland for its efforts to remain responsive to the needs of industry and to best prepare its students with the skills to succeed in the ever-changing world of work.

This motion has been signed by a total of 18 MPs.
