Employers who want to encourage their staff to complete workplace
learning and training must examine their own operations closely,
the Learning and Skills Council has urged.
At a fringe meeting on learning in the independent sector, Learning
and Skills Council sector accounts manager Gail Tipper said
companies needed to embrace the idea of self-assessment and “be
critical of their strengths and weaknesses”.
She added that the independent sector should also expose themselves
to external inspection: “A lot of organisations are quite closed to
us exploring and talking to their staff and finding out what their
budgets and training processes are.”
