Workplace training: employer and employee perspectives

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned ReportOther


This summary highlights key findings from research which examined different aspects of employer-supported training. It focuses largely on the technical report Employer-supported training in Australia: participation, demand and supply which considers drivers of participation in employer-supported training. It also touches on related work which examines employer perspectives of workforce training; and work which evaluates training funded through the National Workforce Development Fund (NWDF) program, which sought to train, reskill and upskill workers in areas of identified skills need.

The technical report explores in more detail drivers of engagement in training which is employer-supported, and their relationship to: supply — employers’ willingness to provide training; and demand — employees’ interest in training.
