Agree wholeheartedly that regardless of the outcome of the yes/no vote, Scotland needs a strong workforce if it is to compete in the global market. 2 points: i) Scotland’s economic success should be measured on a wider scale than the ‘export-led’ economy model – we need to include the wider societal measures that bring wealth to a country including wellbeing. The Carnegie paper ‘Shifting the Dial: from wellbeing measure to policy practice’ which questions the adequacy of GDP as the primary indicator of the progress of societies is well worth a look. ii) Sector Skills Councils are in prime position to help support Scottish employers towards securing business growth and to help address the major challenges and opportunities in the workplace.
