Training 'may increase job prospects'
It is important for any jobseekers who have been made redundant to retrain as there could be job opportunities in sectors they do not have the skills for, it has been claimed.

The Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD) believes that many people do not consider training because they think there are no jobs available due to the recession.

Dr John McGurk, senior advisor on skills and learning for the CIPD, said that jobseekers should use training opportunities as a way to get back into employment.

"Part of the issue is because of the dynamic nature of the economy, we don't really know what jobs will be available sometimes until they appear," he added.

Published by the CIPD, the autumn 2008 Labour Market Outlook revealed that recruitment and redundancies will increase staff levels for 20 per cent of companies.
