Video: Skills tsar – UK must avoid recession training mistakes


The CEO of the UK Commission for Employment and Skills, Chris Humphries, has warned government against using the wrong sort of training as a means of easing unemployment figures during the recession.

In this video, Humphries - the so-called 'Skills Tsar' and the former head of the British Chambers of Commerce - warns against making the same recession mistakes made in the 1970s and 1990s, when investment in training was made purely to take people off the dole queue, and not in the "skills that were going to leave them stronger and fitter for the future".
