A new initiative to promote lifelong learning for the employees of small to medium sized companies has been launched at the factory of K Stevens (Leicester) Ltd, which produces tapes and binding for the textiles industry. Unveiled by Patricia Hewitt MP, Minister for E-commerce and Small Business, The Learning Works is an interactive, computer-based support package, set inside a brightly coloured ‘Pod’ workstation, that will allow employees to learn on-line from a range of optional courses, with the support of a group of virtual mentors.
