Employers spend less on training
Employers are spending less on structured training per employee than they were three years ago, according to figures released today by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).
Overall, employers in Australia spent $1,178.8 million on structured training for their employees during the three-month period from 1 July to 30 September 1996 compared to $1,102.7 million for the same period in 1993. Despite this small increase in total expenditure, when the greater number in the workforce is taken into account, employers spent less between 1 July to 30 September on structured training per employee in 1996 ($185.5) compared to 1993 ($191.3). Employers also provided less hours of structured training per employee (4.91 hours per employee in 1996 compared with 5.55 hours in 1993).
The publication Employer Training Expenditure, Australia (Cat. No. 6353.0) provides extensive information on employer training expenditure in Australia, including details of hours of training received, wage and salary costs of training by industry and employer size for both the private and public sectors.
Some of the main findings, based on the three-month period July to September, are:
