The National Strategic Skills Audit begins by focusing on the extent to which Wales’ current skills needs are being met, using a framework for assessing 'mismatch' between the skills needed and the skills available. The Audit then assesses the likely future skills needs which will arise from the evolution of the economy and labour market by examining "drivers of change" and focusing on key sectors and occupations. It concludes by setting out key skills priorities for Wales using a risk-based assessment.
A separate, shorter, document is also available as Volume 1 of the Audit, which sets out its key findings.
