particular shortages of STEM skills at technician level,

You mean the people who probably don't have degrees, just actual skills needed to get stuff done.

This is the real difference between the UK and (IDK) say Germany.

Both offer excellent training for their top graduates.

But Germany makes much better use of those not-academic-but-smart students rather than what appears to be the UK view of "They are basically disposable scum."
