Abstract: This paper considers some issues in monitoring the regional demand of individuals for skills development, using Scotland in the UK as an illustration. It raises questions concerning the regional monitoring of skills demand and of the barriers to low skilled individuals in improving their skills, including up to Intermediate levels. The chapter considers participation in skills development such as training (including the influence of demographic characteristics) and barriers to this among low skilled people. It highlights the lack of regional data, in the UK and across the EU in general, and the need for such regional data in order to support effective and efficient skills development.
