Unemployment figures bring further good economic news - but jobs outlook remains uncertain, says CIPD - Dr John Philpott, Chief Economic Adviser at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) commented below:
"It's clearly good news week for the UK economy. The inflation rate is down, unemployment is down, and pay pressure is down. However, while the jobs figures are apparently signalling green for go, they reflect an improvement in the labour market at the turn of the year and don't tell us anything much about the road ahead. Indeed, the most up to date figures for vacancies and claimants of Jobseeker's Allowance suggest that labour market conditions softened again in the early spring and it remains likely that unemployment will start to rise again later this year.
"Especially welcome in today's figures is a substantial rise in the number of people working full-time, although this was still insufficient to prevent a further increase in the number of people working part-time who would prefer a full-time job.
"The easing in pay pressure suggests that fears of an inflationary pay-price spiral remain unwarranted. This may be bad news for workers who are suffering a big squeeze on real earnings but is very good news for interest rate setters at the Bank of England and for the wider economy."

So it is good news that there is a substantial rise in people working full time. Regardless of course whether employees are working full time or part time they should still be properly trained to ensure they are working efficiently.

jml Training has a long and successful history of working with local government. We deliver bespoke training that is relevant, results oriented and cost-effective. Our trainers and coaches work with members from across the political spectrum and with officers, from junior to the most senior level. This experience enables us to deliver first class training and support across local government.
The aim of all our training with councillors is to increase their confidence, competence and personal effectiveness as a result of our training input.
We recognise that councillors have very busy and demanding lives and that training and development has got to be responsive to this. We have a flexible approach to workshop duration and timings, recognising that afternoons and evenings or Saturdays are most suitable for council members.

Self-awareness - we aim to build a level of self-awareness and reflection into all our work to enhance the effectiveness of the training.
Practical Solutions - we try to ensure that positive action and change occur as a result of our input. We use concepts and strategies that operate in the real world - not just in handouts.
Communication - we believe that effective communication is a key issue underlying the success of any organisation and try to build an appreciation of this into all our work.
Our training style
Our aim through out all our training is to enable participants to feel empowered by the process. We hope the training is enjoyable, energising and empowering. Our training approach is highly interactive. We base our training on experiential learning and take into account personal learning styles when designing all our courses and programmes.
