Italy is the 2nd E &T market for the UK. It is a growing market with a value of about €5 bn. Companies increasingly understand the benefits of staff development. And public funding has increased considerably.

More than 6 million people (age group 15-64) followed training courses in 2008, the year when the most recent official data are available.

According to data published by ISTAT, the National Institute of Statistics, 1,700,000 employees (7.4%) took part in professional training and educational courses. In 2008, 42.8% of private sector employees tool part in at least one training activity related to their own jobs. In the public sector the percentage was 58.3%.

There is also a growing trend to provide training on any subject using English as a delivery language - more and more schools offer courses in English.
