Scottish Power PLC staff and their families are being given free access to online training to promote learning culture. The scheme, Scottish Power Learning, was launched in April 2003 at a meeting of the Scottish Trade Union Congress and follows a six-month pilot involving 300 employees. The company-wide launch provides access to all 15,000 staff, including 7,500 Great Britain workers, and their immediate families. And because Scottish Power already provided much of the material, making it available at workers' homes has cost the business very little, said Paul McKelvie, director of Scottish Power Learning.
