Since the launch of The Training Camp's campaign in March 2003 to discard the VAT on IT tuition, support has increased. At the time of writing, more than 2,000 individuals have signed the training provider's online petition, while several firms have given their support to the call. 'It's probably a cross-departmental issue, although it is rather short-sighted for departments to say it's not their fault,' sighs Robert Chapman, managing director of The Training Camp.
