Editor's Note

It has been an interesting couple of weeks in the IT industry.
The government launched its Skills Framework for the Information
Age (fondly known as SoFIA). It also annouced 84 million GBP to
help Further Education colleges develop IT infrastructure. The
HOT conference was bigger and better than ever - check out the
reviews of the conference and exhibition on our news pages. The
IT training pages are now edited by Corporate Learning. We are
looking to develop the IT Training pages - let us have your views
