Newham Council is giving ECDL training to 1,000 staff a year to support its efforts to meet e-government targets. The end-user training project is open to all Newham's 5,000 staff and is designed to train them in basic information technology. 'We're not required to train all staff, but we do need to offer access to an appropriate training course,' explains Piers Watson, senior training officer at the East London council. The council has been running an internal marketing campaign to encourage take-up using posters and corporate newsletters.
