Quick Reference

The process of improving workforce skills. This may be done by formal instructional courses, provided by employers or by educational institutions, either before or during employment. Such courses may be full- or part-time. Training can also be provided on the job by working under the supervision of more experienced workers. Most firms which provide any training at all make some use of both methods. Training may lead to some type of formal qualification, but need not do so. See also on-the-job training.

Subjects: Social Sciences.
