The main objective of this study is to provide models for the impact of the information economy on employment and employment opportunities. We will illustrate the national, regional, sectoral impacts as well as the impacts on particular groups defined by national identity, immigrant background, gender and skill levels.
We will develop an integrated model working from national models to local models, exploring the barriers to employment facing key groups and explaining the extent to which these can be overcome through educational and training programs and matching policies to promote social inclusion.
We will provide an analysis of the importance of key sectors and firms linked to them locally and how in turn these factors shape relevant labour markets. We will then explore the extent to which specific kinds of workers face difficulty in entering existing job ladders based on various barriers.
We will demonstrate best practices in overcoming these barriers, focusing particularly on the relationship between training and educational organisations on the one hand (including opportunities for workplace learning) and potentially excluded workers on the other.
