ABSTRACT
The article highlights the importance of ongoing and continuous employee training in Great Britain even during difficult times. The UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES) has started a campaign to employers to continue investing in skills. The campaign is sponsoring a National Training Award. According to the author, a major change in the government's approach to skills is its use of public money to finance in-work training, with the Train to Gain program as the primary vehicle for this.
