The Continuing Vocational Training Survey was the only comparable European-wide survey investigating the issue of the participation and intensity of firm-sponsored training in Europe and was carried out in 1999.

The WZB Social Science Research Centre in Berlin commissioned a series of discussion papers from a number of researchers throughout Europe to examine employer-sponsored training in their own countries, in order to aid interpretation, comparison and analysis of the Continuing Vocational Training Survey and to help understand the causes of differences in the data.

This paper examines employer-sponsored training for adults in the UK.
