Ethnic Differences in the Incidence and Determinants of Employer-Funded Training in Britain
Non-white full-time employees were offered, and undertook, less training than whites in Britain in 1993-94, according to data from the Quarterly Labour Force Survey. Estimates of the determinants of training outcomes and training offers show a marked consistency across white and non-white, male and female, employees. Over 90% of the average predicted training outcome differential, and 50%-60% of the difference in mean predicted training offers, cannot be explained by differences in observable characteristics between white and non-white employees. These findings suggest that equal opportunities legislation has been unsuccessful in eliminating unequal access to employer-funded training in Britain. Copyright 1999 by Scottish Economic Society.
