Editor's note
TrainingZONE aims to cover many facets of the world of training
and development. From NVQs to emotional intelligence, PowerPoint
to NLP, you'll find news, features and resources a-plenty. From
this month, we'll be making one training topic the focus of the
month's content on the site. Relevant news items, workshops,
training materials and resources will be brought together in a
themed page, so you can access them immediately. We begin this
month with work-place training schemes as the theme. If you've
any related comments to make, please do add them to the site, or
alternatively send us a short item for publication.

As a TrainingZONE member, you'll already be well aware of the
Internet, but among the vast variety of information out there,
what's actually of interest to the training professional? In
this Tuesday's workshop, TrainingZONE's MD Tim Pickles looks at
this very question, using feedback and examples from a
presentation he gave at the HRD show last week. It promises to
be an enlightening session!
