According to the study, training is being most commonly received by younger people and women, particularly workers in large organisations and those with higher qualifications.
The report also showed that training also seems to be more prevalent among higher earners, namely those in the top quintile, and staff who are relatively new to the job, which the DWP claims is linked to the provision of induction.
According to the department: "The report does find a small effect on wages of undergoing training, and also increases in the rate of retention and moving into paid work. However, the incidence of training appears to be falling, except among older workers."
Earlier this year, a study carried out by Citrix found that 88 per cent of employers believe on-the-job training is of significant importance to their organisation's wellbeing.
