Training 'is always popular during a recession'
In times of recession, training is always a popular option as many people view it as an opportunity to enhance their skills, is has been claimed.

According to Construction Training London, employees can often be forced to reflect upon their career as they are forced into change.

This has both positive and negative effects and can often mean people find themselves in a position when they start to feel they could benefit from having formal qualifications.

Graham Arnold, centre manager for Construction Training London, said both training courses and university degrees can be useful to workers.

"They want to take a vocational route and that's the right option for them. Others will seek to take an academic route," he added.

Figures from the department for Innovation, Universities and Skills reveal that the government has invested £26.5 million in training to help people retain jobs during the downturn.
