Summary The study focused on the workplace level, and sought to analyse the extent to which the National Training Reform Agenda addressed the cultural, linguistic and social situation of NESB women workers and to identify practical models for dealing with the specific needs of NESB women in relation to training. Recent available research shows that NESB women receive less vocational training, both on and off the job, than any other group. A range of factors has been identified as contributing to this outcome including: inadequate availability of training, English language and literacy problems, discriminatory attitudes, training delivered at inappropriate times, inadequate staff relief, narrow approachs to training, non-recognition of skills held by NESB women, restrictive work organisation, trade and technical barriers and non-integration of language and literacy training with vocational [occupationa] training
