Chris Humphries, director-general of City & Guilds, said there were things missing in Lord Leitch's review, the government-commissioned report into the long-term skills needs of the country. He said the review did not take into account the country's changing workforce demographics and on where the future workforce is coming from, such as bringing in older, low-skilled and unemployed workers.
