Plan for your future skills needs

Support provided by Skills Development Scotland

What does this involve?

Your business’s success often depends on on your people, policies and working practices.

Use this suite of online tools from Skills Development Scotland to help you plan your workforce now and in the future.

By creating your own action plan, you can focus on these areas in a manageable way and reach your goals and overcome challenges in an ever-changing marketplace.

The tools will help you to:

  • assess the skills in your organisation to identify priorities for skills development across your business or department
  • define your future skills needs by seeing how well your current roles match up to the skills you’re going to need
  • create your own skills-first action plan, supported by useful products and services, to develop your people, policies and working practices

Am I eligible?

The tools are suitable for any employer.

What does this cost?

The online tools are free, and you can create an account to get a more detailed report.

Who is this for?

The tools are aimed at managers with responsibility for planning for business sustainability and growth, and who support skills and staff development.

How long does this take?

The tools are personalised to your business and circumstances so you will be asked to add information and answer a set of questions. You can create an account to save your data, results and action plan to come back to at a later date.
