The CBI has called on Great Britain government to make information technology (IT) training more accessible to smaller firms. According to the CBI, formal training costs are disproportionately higher for smaller companies, and courses are rarely flexible. The CBI wants a Michelin-style Great Britain training guide, rating quality and flexibility, to be introduced by the Great Britain Department for Education and Skills, the Department of Trade and Industry and the local Learning and Skills Councils.
