The article reports on the call for review of an inquiry led by the National Institute of Adult Continuing Education on the 55 billion British pounds spent every year on education for over 18 years old. The inquiry said that failure to balance the funding could lead into skill shortages, wasted talent and increased welfare and healthcare burden for the state. Clare Hannah of DB Schenker said that even in the time of a downturn, it is important for employers to facilitate learning as it encourages the staff to work the staff to take on more challenges.
