Subject to the outcome of the current consultation and the passage of legislation on 'time to train' through the House, we expect to introduce a new right enabling up to 22 million employees in England to request time to train from their employer in 2010.

We will build on our current skills communications and marketing campaigns to promote time to train, help employers prepare for its introduction and ensure that it helps them drive their businesses forward.
