Labour Market Intelligence Report

The Sheffield City Region trained over 20,000 apprentices in the 2014/15 academic year, more than the rest of England apart from London and the South East. Meanwhile the number of jobs in the Sheffield City Region (SCR) has grown and the number of people not in education, employment or training has dropped.

For the first time the figures are outlined in the latest Labour Market Intelligence 2016 report produced by the SCR in the run-up to National Apprenticeship Week. (6-10 March).

The ground-breaking report has been compiled to help the SCR and the providers of specialist training decide how to create 70,000 jobs by 2023, the target set in its Strategic Economic Plan.
