This article aims to provide additional knowledge of the pre‐conditions for access to training, thus, how access to training is related to age, type of organization, complexity of the work and level of education of the employees. Relying on secondary data from the European Working Conditions Survey, 2010 for Slovenia (n=1440), I provide two analysis, factor analysis and binomial logistic regression with categorical predictors. The factor analysis’ results revealed the importance of organizational context for the employees’ willingness to train. On the other hand, the binomial logistic regression’s results showed that age, different skills requirement, level of education, complex tasks involvement and private sector are significantly associated with the on‐the‐job training access. While there is no significant gender profile for training, age showed a significant association with the access to train, due to the necessity to address skill inequalities among older employees. Moreover, I found a positive association between private sector employment and training and up‐to‐high education profile and training.
