Employer Co-Funded Training in the UK: Current Practice and Policy Considerations
Thomas, Rhodri; Parsons, David; Barry, John; Rowe, Valerie
Education & Training, v49 n2 p112-125 2007
Purpose: This paper sets out to examine the contribution of employer co-funding of publicly-funded vocational education and training in the UK (i.e. training initiatives that are available to all qualified applicants but funded jointly by the public and private sectors). Design/methodology/approach: The paper draws on qualitative research undertaken with more than 30 employers in a cross-section of economic sectors. Findings: The evidence from this study suggests that there is no model for how and why employers start to become engaged in co-funding publicly-funded training. Originality/value: The paper identifies key issues for public policy-makers. (Contains 5 figures.)
