Helping Women into Work
Ward, Jane
Adults Learning, v23 n2 p36-37 Win 2011
With women bearing a disproportionate share of economic hardship, their poor representation on training designed to tackle barriers to work is a critical concern. The author asks what can be done to improve women's access to this sort of learning. As the underrecruitment of women to ESF pre-employment programmes demonstrates, the author suggests that there is a constant need to reiterate and refresh one's knowledge. One also has to enable new organisations and individuals entering the training field to gain this knowledge and understanding.
