Abstract

Good quality and extensive training opportunities are essential for increasing the skills of the workforce. This report tracks what has been happening in Britain’s workplaces in recent years.  The volume of training has fallen: the proportion of British workers engaged annually in more than ten days’ training declined from 38% in 2006 to 34% in 2012. This fall is especially concentrated among women.  There have been no changes between 2006 and 2012 in the extent of certification of training or in its perceived contribution to skills enhancement. But fewer people are satisfied with the training they receive, and fewer report that their training helps them to enjoy their job more.  The quality of training, like its volume, is greater for those workers with more prior education; this gradation reinforces inequality.  There is a rising demand by workers at all levels of education to receive workplace training.
