    Abstract

    In the recent edition of Scottish Labour Market Trends, the Fraser of Allander Institute’s joint publication with the Scottish Centre for Employment Research, we noted that there had been a downward trend in the share of employees who were receiving job related training over the past decade or so. In this article we review the data in more detail to better understand what the trends have been in job related training in Scotland and elsewhere in the UK.
