This article presents the results of an investigation into the participation and outcome rates of ethnic minorities on Employment Training (ET). It demonstrates that ethnic minorities are joining schemes in representative proportions, yet are not enjoying the positive outcomes experienced by their white counterparts. It presents qualitative data which uncovers the experiences of ethnic minority trainees and confirms that, whilst government training is perceived as worthwhile, discrimination and prejudice distort the process to such an extent that inequality of opportunity occurs.
