clickable picture links, If you view your LearningWire online,
why not switch now?

One recent piece of feedback we received this week said: 'Wow,
it's not all automated - you noticed me!'. Although we may
appear virtual, TrainingZONE's editorial team is alive and
kicking and keeping a daily watch on the comments and views you
post to the site - and it makes for some great viewing, as I'm

One of the other ways we get an idea of what you're interested in
are our regular user surveys. Thanks to all of you who've taken
part in our latest site user survey so far - it's given us a
fascinating insight into what's you find interesting and helpful
- and what you find less so - on the site currently. There's
still time to vote before we close the poll for good - so vote
