Graduates could benefit from study and training time

Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in transport and utilities may be interested to hear that a recruitment expert has reinforced the importance of individuals having access to training at work.
Lisette Howlett, spokesperson for Hirescores.com, said that access to training is vital for individuals and beneficial to organisations that offer it.
She added: "Training and education, almost regardless of the subject matter, is a good thing. There is a strong upside for an employer in that they will have a more motivated and better trained member of staff.
"For those companies who already offer good paid training opportunities the impact is likely to be negligible with the slight risk that an individual who is turned down will turn to the legislation in an attempt to enforce the right to training."
Ms Howlett was speaking in response to new government measures that allow employees the right to request time for study or training. Workers will be allowed to ask for time to undertake study or training relevant to the job.
