Government expands Train to Gain
The government is to extend its Train to Gain scheme, it has emerged.

Plans have been outlined to by the secretary of state for innovation, universities and skills John Denham as part of £11 billion to be invested into education, employment and training.

The Train to Gain initiative was launched in 2006 and has helped 240,000 employees learn new skills as well as giving companies the chance to recognise their business needs.

Chair of the Learning Skills Council (LSC) Chris Banks said the expansion of the scheme will mean even more employers will have access to it.

"Train to Gain is a revolutionary development in the way that we deliver services to employers and these changes will ensure that even more employers and training providers are able to work with government to raise the nation's skill levels," he remarked.

Skills minister David Lammy added that he was delighted to see firms recognising the importance of training staff.

The LSC aims to improve the skills of the England's workforce.
