The Centre for Progressive Policy (CPP) has developed a skills mapping system with the capability to identify potential mismatches in technical skills in local areas. The demand for technical skills – established through analysis of live vacancy data – is compared to the supply flowing from further education (FE) colleges to pinpoint areas of potential under or overprovision.

The system has been used to inform the analysis of the Centre’s new report, The Data Deficit: Why a lack of information undermines the UK skills system.
