SummaryThis research project will use data from the 2004 Workplace Employee Relations Survey (WERS 2004) to provide robust, quantitative analyses of the key factors determining participation in work-based training.
The proposed research will draw on both the employee survey in WERS, to find out which workers receive training, and the employer survey to study the characteristics of workplaces which provide high levels of training and/or access to training for many different types of workers.
The project will also look specifically at the training practices in the education sector and benchmark them against practices in the rest of the economy. The research will contribute to the WLE Centre's objectives through analysis of the organisational contexts in which work-based learning occurs, by providing information on the extent of participation in work-based training and on the characteristics of enterprises which give equitable access to training across the range of workers in the organisation.
