Video: UK must avoid making same training mistakes as last recession


The CEO of the UK Commission for Employment and Skills, Chris Humphries, has warned government against using the wrong sort of training as a means of easing unemployment figures during the recession.

In this video, Humphries, the former head of the British Chambers of Commerce, says that we must not make the same recession mistakes that were made in the 1990s, when investment in training was made purely to take people off the dole queue, and not in the “skills that were going to leave them stronger and fitter for the future”.
