The skills gap costs around £10bn a year in Great Britain in lost earnings, according to the Learning and Skills Council (LSC). As the primary agency for increasing the skills of the national workforce, it is bankrolled by the Government to the tune of £9bn a year to address this problem. Funding is distributed and courses delivered by a wide range of accredited training providers and further education colleges, and via the national Business Link network. Registered suppliers have a funding contract with the LSC, and are channelled through geographical or industry sector hubs.
