A strong skill base is an important element of a productive and
sustainable economy. The Department for Education and Skills spends
around GBP 6.7 billion on skills training in England, with an
additional GBP 23.7 billion being spent by employers. Despite this
expenditure there are still skill shortages and the UK has low
productivity compared to rival economies. This report follows two
others on the subject: "Skills For Life: Improving Adult Literacy
and Numeracy"; and "Securing Strategic Leadership in the Learning
and Skills Sector in England". It is based on direct research with
employers on how they want publicly funded training to be improved
and whether it represents value for money. It is divided into four
sections that look at the need for: clear advice on the best
training for staff; training that meets business needs; incentives
for employers to do more training; and ways that employers can
influences skills training.
