Level 3 for adults?

“And the irony is that level 3 is what employers are looking for,” she says. “If we are seriously trying to support our local community through economic regeneration, then we have to kit them out with the best qualifications – which, in London, is level 3 and upwards.”-Barbara Field, Principal of Harrow College, quoted in Education Guardian article

I think its Level 3 vocational qualifications employers are after elsewhere as well – at least it was when I was last involved in labour market surveys. How do we pay for training older people? Citizens bear the cost as in US, or state provision, or employers? What balance? Who are the stakeholders? Likely to be ‘interesting times’ ahead.
