This report contributes to the UK Commission’s work to transform the UK’s approach to investing in the skills of people as an intrinsic part of securing jobs and growth.

It outlines the performance challenges faced in the tourism sector, the ‘real-life’ skills solutions implemented by leading and successful businesses to overcome them, and the benefits from doing so.

Similar reports are available for the following sectors: Advanced Manufacturing; Construction; Digital and Creative; Education; Energy; Health and Social Care, Professional and Business Services; Retail. Each report is summarised by an accompanying PowerPoint slide pack.

By understanding the key performance challenges employers face and the skills solutions available to address them on a sector-by-sector basis the UK Commission can make better use of its investment funds to support economic growth.
