In this study, the following findings were obtained as a result of the research and evaluations on the statistics of the implementation of the on-the-job training program carried out by ISKUR.
Rather than enabling the individuals with theoretical education but not enough practical skills or unqualified individuals to participate in employment by qualifying them, the on-the-job training practice has been broadened to be able to cover the professions that do not need the on-the-job training. Instead of meeting the requests of the employers who report the need for on-the-job training from the labor force available in the ISKUR records, going to the implementation of on-the-job training has become a means of providing free labor force to the employers in a sense.
In order to obtain the expected benefits from the on-the-job training practice, it is necessary to choose the individuals or groups to be included in the practice from the individuals who are not really qualified or to be composed of individuals who do not have a valid profession. It should be prevented that the on-the-job training practice is seen as a free labor source by the employers.
It is clear that the realization of the on-the-job training in accordance with its purpose will prevent the being idle of manpower resources, and it will make it easier for the individuals whose lacking is felt in the areas the economy needs or the individuals whose unemployed process is taking long because of the lack of qualifications to join the employment.
