Work-related training

  • By Matt Hurst


  • Participation in job-related training supported by the employer remained fairly steady at about 23% from 1993 to 2002.

  • However, participation in job-related training with no employer support rose from 4% to 10% over the same period, almost entirely because of full-time workers.

  • Education is a prime driving force behind participation in job-related training, and its effect grew larger between 1993 and 2002 for women.
