FEs offer skills for free

July 14, 2000

CollegeNet, a consortium of seven colleges of further education, has launched a free scheme to help people in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), as well as individuals, to learn new online skills.

CollegeNet will focus initially on the delivery of cyberskills workshops, designed by ICL to introduce people to technologies such as the internet, email, CD-Rom, multimedia and video and data conferencing.

The workshops will be run across the UK free of charge by the colleges. The three-hour workshops are tailored to the needs of individuals and introduce participants to e-business technologies and concepts.

CollegeNet will provide a range of online courses, with full online tutor support designed and developed specifically for the business market, from September.
