Small businesses across London now have access to free Internet and e-commerce training, following the completion of a London Development Agency (LDA)-funded project to help SMEs benefit from IT. The Greenwich Enterprise Board (GEB) piloted the project in 2002 and the LDA agreed to fund it on condition that it covered the whole of London. GEB is training similar organisations in the north and west of the capital. "I think what has been so popular is that the courses are hands-on, very practical and aimed at owner-managers who don't necessarily have a wide range of IT skills," says Deirdre Alsey, IT manager at GEB.
