When I was a very junior civil servant in the ministry that deals out justice and allows folk to bring their smaller cases to court, there were many mandatory training courses for the staff in our teams.  When I originally joined the service, they had their own dedicated training teams that used to travel to offices within regions and train new recruits in situ.   Then this team began training groups of trainees in a dedicated training suite at our HQ in London.  I found this much more acceptable as candidates were protected from the noise and bustle of the working office environment and able to concentrate on actually learning the somewhat complex nature of the job.  This is one thing about all work placed training – being able to actually learn what the new job is about and knowing how to recognise our place in achieving the goals.  Good training is key to job success and satisfaction.
