Editor's note

This week looks set to be a busy one for training commentators,
with the Budget due on Wednesday and the annual HRD show at
Olympia in London running from Tuesday to Thursday. We'll be
bringing you news updates from both events as they happen and
throughout the week. In the meantime, have your say about what
the Chancellor should do to encourage learning in the workplace
by voting in our Poll at

The more observant among you will have noticed that LearningWire
is about to reach another milestone - next weeks' issue will be
the 200th. We'll be marking this occasion with yet another key
development - the publication of LearningWire in HTML format for
the first time. Find out more about how to receive it in this
format at
