This paper considers some issues in monitoring the regional demand of individuals for skills development, using Scotland in the UK as an illustration. The UK Commission for Employment and Skills, a non-departmental public body, (UKCES, 2010) found that Scotland is relatively weak in the area of Intermediate skills compared to other UK nations and internationally. This 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.
