Editor's Note
=============

This special edition of the IT Trainers Newswire is brought to
you in association with Cisco.

The slowdown in demand for IT skills might itself be slowing
down, which is a start. Meanwhile everyone is telling us that we
need to improve skills to raise the UK's productivity. So what
would make all the difference? What would revive the IT training
profession? Email us with your opinion, or post it in the forum:
