The Secretary of State for Education and Employment established the Skills Task Force to assist in developing a National Skills Agenda.

The Task Force was asked to provide advice on the nature, extent and pattern of skill needs and shortages (together with associated recruitment difficulties), how these were likely to change in the future and what could be done to ease such problems.

This paper is one of a series commissioned by the Task Force, focussing on the issues surrounding the provision and use of science skills in the UK economy.
