The impact of Train to Gain on skills in employment: a review to follow up the 2007/08 survey report. This new review, of a further 40 providers, identifies where strengths in Train to Gain provision have been sustained, and highlights the availability of Skills for Life training as an area for improvement. The report finds that Train to Gain continues to give employees the opportunity to secure nationally recognised qualifications and improves their motivation in the workplace. The report also reveals too few employees are completing qualifications on time and there is insufficient provision to allow employees to progress to higher-level awards at the equivalent of A level. Skills for Life provision, which includes support for employees’ basic skills in language, literacy and numeracy, continues to be a key area for improvement.
