Training and Enterprise Councils: a continued search for local flexibility

Martin Russell Jones

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article argues that a flawed, Private Industry Councils - style, output related funding regime which promoted creaming was imported into Britain. In this system low cost training is delivered, at the cost of both high-cost, high-skill and those with special needs provision. Intriguing research questions can be posed on the desination of the savings produced through cost-cutting and output related funding. Apart from bank interest induced cash surpluses, evidence drawn from Employment Department documentation, appears to show that TECs are switching surpluses made from training the unemployed toward underpinning their economic development initiatives. -from Author
