I have been amazed at the high profile TV advertising for Train to Gain. I can't remeber a time when training has been given such a high profile in the media. made me go in search of related stories – and here are some plucked from my Google reader (and all Personnel Today).

Organisations must train UK staff before bringing in migrant workers
£27m skills training pot available for employment projects
Government gives £65m to Train to Gain for car firms
Cadbury committed to employee training and development

And then there is this counterpoint on training budget surveys that reveal different responses to the downturn.
