Labour's training league tables

26th July 1996 at 01:00
Top companies would be ranked in league tables according to their performance on training under a new Labour government, the party's training spokesman said today. Shadow education and employment minister Stephen Byers said the top 100 firms, who between them employ 3.5 million, would be included.

The tables would focus on the amount spent per employee on training, the percentage of employees taking part, opening individual learning accounts and the proportion gaining a recognised qualification. Labour has already said that companies' annual reports should contain details of their commitment to training. Mr Byers said league tables would act as a "powerful incentive" for companies to train employees and would "concentrate the minds of senior company executives".
