Training and progression in the labour market
This research reviews recent trends on training, and seeks to uncover the link between training and changes in employment characteristics. Specifically, it looks for a relationship between undertaking training and gaining, retaining and advancing in employment.
The report does find a small effect on wages of undergoing training, and also increases in the rate of retention and moving into paid work. However, the incidence of training appears to be falling (which may be reflecting higher unemployment), except among older workers.
