TrainingZONE LearningWire #175 – CIPD preview, 21 ways to deliver excellent training, regulating e-learning


TrainingZONE LearningWIRE - Issue 175
22 October 2001

RESOURCES: 21 Ways to Deliver Excellent Training
NEWS and INFORMATION: CIPD 2001 - exhibition and show preview
WORK OPPORTUNITIES: Senior Training Consultants, Manchester/London
COMMUNITY FEATURES: A regulatory body for e-learning?

Editor's note

After a mammoth effort from our technical, production and
editorial teams, a brand new TrainingZONE finally launched late
on Wednesday evening. It's been a massive task, not least
because it's the first major overhaul of the site since it was
started back in Autumn 1997. Every area of the site has been
treated to a brand-new look, and the navigation has been
reorganised to bring the most heavily-used areas to the
forefront. Next Monday, the site will be getting its official
relaunch, when we'll showcase all that's on offer - if you'd
like to be associated with the launch, do get in touch with our
sales team at . In the
meantime, the News section below gives a special preview of some
of the new features we've added. We hope you enjoy the new site!

p.s. The TrainingZONE team will be on the move at CIPD Harrogate
next week, but we'd still love to catch up with you. Send us an
e-mail at the address below before Wednesday and we'll be happy
to arrange a meeting.

21 Ways to Deliver Excellent Training

solution in the form of a 24 page file containing a series of 21
instant, practical ideas to liven up your training events.
