Careers: Recognition for in-house training

Companies offering in-house training for employees could gain more recognition after the government announced plans to accredit leading schemes to become recognised qualifications.

The Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS) is currently discussing a national framework that will recognise quality training schemes.

The move is part of an official skills drive, with the government looking to prompt companies to improve and expand work-based training.

John Denham, secretary of state for the DIUS, said: “The government recognises that the training many organisations offer is of a very high standard.

“We want to end the outdated distinction between employers’ training and public qualifications.

“By bringing qualifications and skills closer, business, employees and the state will all benefit.

“We know that successful businesses need a skilled workforce to stay ahead, and it’s the government’s job to give them the support they need to do this.”
