For example if a teacher is having difficulties with Business than s/he can take lessons outside the school to learn more skills on teaching that lesson.

This is useful because they can still work while getting help from the trainer so he/she is still useful to the business. On the job training for Teachers The teachers might need help with using the interactive whiteboard and so another teacher can teach him/her on how to use it and s/he won't have to waste time training outside the school. This is also useful because the school won't have to spend too much money on training because they can tell other teachers to help each other.
