A little learning

Two fifths of those working in transport and distribution haven’t learnt anything new in the past year, according to new research from The Department For Business, Innovation and Skills. Not only that, fifteen per cent haven’t read a book for pleasure during the past 12 months. However, over a third of workers in the industry said they felt that learning a new skill or hobby would make them more confident at work. The thing they would most like to learn is photography (26 per cent), followed by martial arts (8 per cent). Following a consultation last year the government committed an additional £30 million during 2009/10 to support informal adult learning under the banner of The Learning Revolution.
