Labour market oriented training incentives for workers
In the Flemish labour market, various measures stimulate workers to take part in training. These include both direct financing for the worker and indirect financing via the employer. Previous inventories of the training incentives revealed that these measures are highly fragmented. This study focuses on the demand side of the training market by presenting an overview of 13 measures for workers and employers.
This study investigates the extent to which different groups are being reached by the policy in its current form. Moreover, it goes beyond strictly inventorying training incentives and their stipulations: the study presents the previously identified strengths and weaknesses of the measures, as well as gaps and overlaps in the Flemish training policy. Based on the results, recommendations are made for the possible scenarios on which the future training policy could be based.
