In Most games I have 30+ shots but struggle to score or get on target. Is there something I can do to improve this?
Well the Screenshot u posted looks quite successfull? generally "work ball in the box" should reduce the unlikely distanceshots, also i recommend setting any player with the ppm "shoots from distance" to the instruction "shoot less". in any offensive orientated system you will have a worse shot% because the quality of the chances is worse compared to a counterattacking system eg
A statistic published by the Premier League a couple of years ago showed that the top teams had an average of roughly 36.5-37% of their shots go on target. From that screenshot, 18 of 41 gives a percentage shots on target of 43.9%, which is very very high. Of course there are games that are outliers where teams have up to 70 or more % shots on target, but roughly 44% is pretty damn good.

You can always set team and player instructions for players to wait for better opportunities to score, when the odds of hitting the target are much higher (as Mozes explained above), as well as training your players to have Preferred Moves like 'Place Shots', and others that would increase the likelihood of them going for accuracy over higher risk shots.
Maybe the problem is more with AI getting pretty consistently 50-60+% on target and a great conversion rate
